That is just a usage example, you need to replace PUBKEY with the path
to a key, like /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-8-and-9-primary.
Note that yum will do this for you automatically in most cases, so it
is not necessary.  (As the page says just above that example: "The
keys used by Fedora are enabled in the yum repository configuration,
so you generally don't need to manually import them into the rpm

More likely, you'd want to use gpg to import the key and then verify
the fingerprint, as the later examples show.

It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of
work to do.
