It is not a bug


PPA: NO_PUBKEY C2518248EEA14886

I faced the following error in Ubuntu 15.04 when trying to: sudo apt-get update

GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net vivid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY C2518248EEA14886
 
Googling, there are several solutions for it, but none worked.
Only a old script that is in a couple of Ubuntu forums:

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-2257304.html





Script:

#!/bin/sh
# This script adds PPA keys to the primary keyring in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg
# thus getting around the GPG limit of 40 keyrings.
# WARNING: It's only intended as the last resort measure.
# Rather than using it, reduce your use of PPAs.

This script works best with package 'distro-info' installed.

Consider installing distro-info with
sudo apt-get install distro-info

Continuing execution anyway

WebLogic Server XML Parsers

Many times there are question in WebLogic Server about parser factories:

java.lang.AbstractMethodError: javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory.setFeature

  java.lang.ClassCastException: weblogic.xml.jaxp.RegistryXMLInputFactory cannot be cast to javax.xml.stream.XMLInputFactory
    Error weblogic.xml.jaxp.RegistryXMLInputFactory cannot be cast to javax.xml.stream.XMLInputFactory

 java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance(Ljava/lang/String;Ljava/lang/ClassLoader;)Ljavax/xml/parsers/DocumentBuilderFactory;




Because the classpath retrieve from different parts these implemenations, including the JDK6 which bundles in it now.

This is how you can change by system properties the implementation, using xerces:

-Djavax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory=org.apache.xerces.jaxp.SAXParserFactoryImpl -Djavax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory=org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl -Djavax.xml.parsers.SAXParser=org.apache.xerces.jaxp.SAXParserImpl

maybe you'll need to add xercesImpl.jar to your classpath.
