I installed Rune in my desktop, I use Linux Mint. I am of community PT-BR and I have used this command for install:

sudo -s -- << EOF
wget -O - | apt-key add -
mkdir -p /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb trusty non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/runescape.list
apt-get update
apt-get install -y runescape-launcher

And I have success, but recently this message has appeared in the Update Manager of Linux Mint:

What should I do?

From what I understand the updates are not being made, why repositories are wrong.

Since now, I appreciate the help!

Jagex is still using a SHA-1 based signature and your version of Linux Mint requires a signature based on something better than SHA-1 such as SHA-256. Unfortunately you will see that error message if you are using a current version of Linux Mint and Jagex's repository until Jagex's updates their signature. Your operating system might be updating OK anyway. However, if you want to bypass the signature check you can do

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [trusted=yes] trusty non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/runescape.list'

so that regardless of the signature issue the repository will be trusted. You might still see a message about the invalid signature but updates will complete. Unfortunately doing this basically disables a security feature of Linux.

I am unsure about what version of Linux Mint you have. You typed that you used Jagex's instructions to install the client but Jagex's instructions don't work with the current version of Linux Mint. I thought maybe you have an older version of Linux Mint. However a version of Linux Mint that is old enough to work with Jagex's instructions for installing the client wouldn't have a problem with Jagex's SHA-1 signature.

Sudo su

echo "deb trusty main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu_14.04_aka_trusty.temp.list
apt-get update

apt-get -y install libglew1.10 libpng12-0
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu_14.04_aka_trusty.temp.list

apt-get -y install libcurl3

wget -O - | apt-key add -
echo "deb [trusted=yes] trusty non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/runescape.list

apt-get update

apt-get install -y runescape-launcher

this is my install method to force the unsgined key cause they are poop at updating the launcher the game its self works but the launcher gpg key is sheit

the game launcher requires out of date stuff in ubuntu mint is a offshoot of ubuntu so libglweb1.1 and libnpng 12 and libcurl 3 are required for the launcher and game
