Repository changed its ‘Origin’ value from ‘Google, Inc.’ to ‘Google LLC’ – How to fix?

If you’re on Debian or Ubuntu and using Google official repositories for updating your system, you might have received the following error.

E: Repository 'http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable Release' changed its 'Origin' value from 'Google, Inc.' to 'Google LLC'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.

This is such an obvious error. Google Inc has changed its registration to Google LLC and hence the APT repository’s owner has also changed. To fix this, just run the following command.

sudo apt update

You will be prompted to accept the owner change. Press y and Enter.
