Tor browser signature verification failed

I tried to install the Tor Browser from the official repo.
When trying to launch it says: “Download Tor Browser for the first time”
After a little waiting a error message pops up:

SIGNATURE VERIFICATION FAILED!
Error Code: […]: Key expired
You might be under attack, there might be a network problem or you may be missing a recently added Tor browser Verification key.

Online I found this fix (that didnt work for me: gpg: keyserver refresh failed: No keyserver available):
gpg --homedir "$HOME/.local/share/torbrowser/gnupg_homedir/" --refresh-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu

How can I fix that?

Please do what torpoject suggests on their page, download it from them, extract it where you want and launch it.

It will update itself each time there is a new version.

Just a heads up, torbrowser-launcher 0.3.2-4 resolved the issue.

I just tried the version 0.3.2-4 version. I get a pop up message during the installation process “the version of Tor browser you have installed is earlier than it should be, which could be a sign of an attack!” I clicked okay, and the installer kept spinning and nothing happened.

I tired the Flatpak version and that works just fine.
