    There’s a typo in the “add key” section.

    It should say:
    sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

    instead of:
    sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

    Nevertheless, thanks for the article!

      Was there supposed to be a difference in what you typed?

      “””
      It should say:
      sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

      instead of:
      sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
      “””

      Your “instead of:” text is identical to your “It should say:” text… unless it was edited post factum.

        Caution. The EM dash displayed by the website/browser looks like a single hyphen to the quick reader. It is actually TWO hyphens.
