Package: torbrowser-launcher
Version: 0.1.9-1+deb8u3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the last times when I started torbrowser, it started checking for upgrades as usual an it found a new

"Your Tor  Browser is out of date. Upgrading from 6.0.8 to 6.5"

It started downloading with te progress bar movint to 100%, afterwards trying to verify tthe signature. 

I now get an error message: 

"SINATURE VERIFICATION FAILED! You might be under attack, or there might be a networking problem. Click
Start try the download again"

I tried to download again many times an always get the same error message. I assume that there is some
problem I cannot solve on my own ... don't believe I am under attack ...

Thank you very much,
