Someone may be able to help you if you provide more information. For instance, what were you doing or trying to do when you got this message? I think there may be a signing key for verifying Sparky isos and perhaps a different one that is used by system upgrade tools and repos. On the Sparky wiki, there are instructions about verifying isos, but the key ID referenced there is different than the one you posted.

If this key you've referenced is one that is accessed online rather than locally on your system, then I guess there's always the chance that the server your system is trying to access is temporarily down; if so, then it might work as expected later if you try again.

When you're looking for help on this or other similar forums, it would be good for you to mention what version of OS (i.e. Sparky here) you're using along with the window manager (WM) and/or desktop environment (DE). You can use the command-line tool 'inxi' and its various options to generate general / specific / relevant information about your system that you can then copy from the terminal (Shift + Ctrl + C) and paste into your post here using the code markers for easier readability. (Hover over the icons above where you're writing till you see the one marked 'Code', click on that and it should give you code markers like this: "code""/code" except with bracket markers in place of the quote markers. Then just paste the inxi output from the terminal between the code markers so it will show up correctly [you can use the preview option to check it's working as expected].) The 'inxi' tool has lots of different options -- here is just one example: 'inxi -Frz'. The '-F' option includes basic information for quite a few parts of your system, the '-r' option provides details on your repos, and the '-z' option filters out some things for privacy / security, which is probably a good idea when posting in public spaces like this forum.
Installation / public key is not available

The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5CA76B26C40956B8

How do I get the PUBKEY?  What's the name of the server?

I have installed Sparky kernel 6.8.3-sparky8-amd64.
I have got 8 × Intel® Core™ i5-10400F CPU @ 2.90GHz processor.
There is an info about Spectre 2 vulnerability - Vulnerable eIBRS with unprivileged eBPF.

I have disable it using this command
$ sudo sysctl kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled=0
but after restart it stills persist.

When I use linux-image-6.6.15-amd64 kernel there is no info like this above.
How to fix it?
