Recent Linux client update changes

There has been an update to the Spotify Linux client signatures.

Users may see errors linked to missing keys and failed signature verifications for Spotify when updating the system.


If this happens to you, this can be fixed by manually adding the updated key:

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add -


Have a nice day! 🙂

Looks like that there is some functionality broken:

- Sorting 'Liked Songs' with title and trying to play them in that order does not work, see

- Select All in Liked songs does not work, it only selects small subset (tracks that have been loaded to ui, scrolling it slowly will load more.

I've recently installed deb repository, on Xubuntu 20.04, gave me no pubkey error issuing the command indicated in help page:

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add -

I was able to bypass this error entering this:

sudo rm /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/home\:ungoogled_chromium.asc

Then re-Issuing:

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add -

and the repo was added successfully signed. I don't know if the error was depending by the key provided by Spotify or by an old key derived by a previous installation of Ungoogled-Cromium app not present anymore on my box.


Weird mystery of the asc file Spotify-Ungoogled-Cromium anyway.


Hope this helps
