I have put the new debuginfo key, without the subkey on
mirror.centos.org ... you can get the new key here:


and replace the one in '/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/' ... or wait until the new
centos-release package is released soon.

As Jim already mentioned, if you want debug-install and the yum
debuginfo plugin to work .. change the name of the debug repo (in the
/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Debuginfo.repo) from [debug] to [base-debuginfo]

We will also be making that change in the new centos-release file.

The sha256sum for that new RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-Debug-7 file is:
