Could you check if the setup.ini.sig file is just not stored to disk and

put alongside the setup.ini file?
Is there a new requirement that a local repository has to have a
signature file? And does it have to be setup.ini.sig (rather than,
for example, setup.bz2.sig)?
You can always tell it to not check the signature (--no-verify / -X),
but if the directory you set it upon looks like a mirror and has a setup
file, then it will by default want to check the signature (belonging to
the actual suffix used: .xz, .bz2 and lastly .ini).
I maintain my own small repository at a remote site and mirror it on my local
machine. It contains, for each architecture, setup.ini, setup.xz, and
setup.xz.sig. Installation from the remote site works fine. If I try to
install from my local mirror, setup complains that it can't find setup.ini.sig.
I can install from the local mirror only if I add setup.ini.sig.
And even then, setup doesn't seem to work right on the local mirror. The only
choices it gives me on the local packages are "Keep" and "Uninstall".
