      Had the same problem.

      Somehow the dash after “apt-key add” became a funny kind of dash on the webpage. Replacing it with a real dash by typing the dash on my keyboard worked for me.

        To be more precise: I had the same problem when copy-pasting from this page ;)

    try typing that in yourself, pasting it in a terminal will cause the lines to wrap incorrectly and the error.

    You can try downloading medibuntu-keyring
    apt-get install medibuntu-keyring

    If you trust the site then this is how to add the key at the command line:
    sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys
    where is the number after NO_PUBKEY which in your case, Tyler was 2EBC26B60C5A2783

    I would be skeptical about trusting it if you can’t do it through [b]apt-get install medibuntu-keyring[/b] as they have always provided that package for their GPG signature.

      It looks like you’re probably trying to do the part where is says:
      [b][i] second option is to add Medibuntu repositories by copying this command to your terminal :[/b][/i]
      And the problem is that It is supposed to be all one line of text but the word wrapping in my browser is turning it into two. You can just omit the "[b][i]&&[/i][/b]" part if that’s the case.

      Alternatively, and from the Ubuntu Community resource documentation, the same command in this blog post is also on this page where copying and pasting does work. Its the top section of "Adding The Repository" though the second part is not a bad idea either.
      https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

      If you get curious and read more than just the first part of the Community Documentation page then do [b][i]not[/i][/b] do the command under the heading "[b][i]Removing Non-Free Software[/i][/b]"

      If you get it done properly, be sure to install libdvdcss2 and either w32codecs or w64codecs (depending upon a 32 or 64 bit install of the OS) to get DVD playback as well as a good chunk of the codecs to be had.

      Good Luck
