Hello @ssanders, can you update your Mycroft version? Do
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install mycroft-core, also the GPG key error can be fixed by this command
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys F3B1AA8B.
Also the picroft for some reason takes a LONG time to download the skills. Go into your skills directory
cd ~/skills and do an
ls -al to see if you have all the default skills downloaded. Paring may not be working because the pairing skill has not yet downloaded.
To debug to see if you mic is working, first update the Mycroft package from the instructions above, then enter the Mycroft cli by typing
cli on picroft or
python mycroft.client.text.main cli --quiet for the other platforms. On the bottom right, you should see a sound meter going up and down, which should help you debug if your mic is being picked up by Mycroft. Note that feature is only available on more recent Mycroft packages that's why you would need to update to see that.
