Linux - Google inc. to Google LLC.


As Google has decided to change it's name over night from Google Inc. to Google LLC and updated it in the software repos accordingly, many distros update services started to give errors whilst trying to verify the Google Chrome's repo signatures. 


Tthis error message is meant to ensure that the new entity named Google LLC you are fetching Google Chrome updates from is the same as Google, Inc. that your system trusts and knows its signature. By accepting the change, you asking your system to trust Google LLC and accept Google Chrome updates from it in the future.
The error generally states: "Repository 'http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable Release' changed its 'Origin' value from 'Google, Inc.' to 'Google LLC'"
To resolve it, simply in terminal type "sudo apt update" and select Yes.
