Quick Start for Confluent Platform
Use the Confluent Platform Docker images or the
confluent localConfluent CLI to locally install Confluent Platform in development/testing environments.
If you are on a Macbook M1, you can use the Confluent CLI and the ARM64 version of the Confluent Platform Docker images for local install. The

Revoke in GnuPGP¶
gpg --delete-key 41468433 gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 8b1da6120c2bf624
Revoke in Debian Linux Based Distributions¶
If you see APT showing you an error similar to the following:
- Err:4 ``https://packages.confluent.io/deb/7.3`` stable InRelease The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY KEY_ID Reading package lists... Done W: GPG error: ``https://packages.confluent.io/deb/7.3`` stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY KEY_ID E: The repository '``https://packages.confluent.io/deb/7.3`` stable InRelease' is not signed. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
Then, revoke the old key and import the latest:
sudo apt-key del 41468433 wget -qO - https://packages.confluent.io/deb/7.3/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
Revoke in Redhat Linux Based Distributions¶
If a YUM/DNF shows you a warning similar to the following:
warning: /path/to/new/package: Header V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID KEY_ID: NOKEY
Then, revoke the old key and import the latest. Note that, internally,
RPM stores imported GPG keys as
sudo rpm -e gpg-pubkey-41468433-54d512a8 sudo rpm --import https://packages.confluent.io/rpm/7.3/archive.key
