    I missed a line break after fixing the pretty printing issues.

    OK – I figured out that pretty-printing had converted ‘ and ” and —

    So I got the commands to run, but it does not find any upgrade:

    0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    So it seems that there is no 3.1 available yet…

    I get the following error message:
    ‘gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.’

    Do I need to create a key first?
