Same error here on Linux Mint.
I installed BRAVE a week ago following the install instructions for linux on the website.

Below - Error message from Mint Update Manager

An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com xenial InRelease: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 0B31DBA06A8A26F9Failed to fetch https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/dists/xenial/InRelease The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 0B31DBA06A8A26F9Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

To remedy this issue, re-run the apt-key add command from the install instruction found here:

https://brave-browser.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing-brave.html#linux

specifically, at the time of this writing:
curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key add -

I followed the instructions for the provided link and I an still having the same problem. I too only installed Brave a few days ago on a newly installed Linux Mint system. Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
