Hey @swimminggreenblueshark,

You’ll need to remove the following files:

rm /usr/share/keyrings/digitalocean-agent-keyring.gpg
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d; rm; rm droplet-agent.list

Then run again apt update.

Additionally, I"ll recommend creating backup of the files you intend to remove with the above commands. You can either use the cp command or directly create a Snapshot of your Droplet:

Snapshots are on-demand disk images of DigitalOcean Droplets and volumes saved to your account. Use them to create new Droplets and volumes with the same contents.
