Seems that you are not the only one with this problem.

Basically, packages are signed with a GPG key and most likely that message is because you need to import a key.

We need more information, including the exact error message and the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list

See the link I gave you. It works for the default repositories.

If you need more specific assistance you need to provide us with more details. What repository are you trying to add ? what error message are you getting ?

Can you post the output of
cat /etc/apt/sources.list and then
gpg --list-keys from the terminal?

True. He might try as I did, by selecting the main server, might be some server aren't updated and this cause the problem.

Sir,

Thank you for helping me out.

the links you posted and all the information in there was new to me. so i didn't know really what to do. but I followed as much as I can and hopefully have fixed it all.

here's the information I get now when I run "sudo apt-get update" in the terminal:
Is that OK. I guess nothing wrong now, its just problem on the server, they no more have the pages, which is my computer shows 404 error.

You seem to be using a lot of ppa ....

What ppa is that ? You need to go to the ppa and confirm you have the correct line in /etc/apt/sources.list

See the links I already gave you and the project home / ppa page.

If your sources.list is correct, you will need to file a bug report with the project so they can fix their repo (ppa).

Grrrrr WTF???

I get this message no matter what I try to install. From OpenOffice to Gnome Tetris. Nothing installs at all, even if it's in the main repository.

I don't know how to go about getting every single PPA key needed. All I did was install (supported) updates from update-manager and now nothing will install.

So thanks a lot for another great update. I think I'm just going to remove update-manager and never update anything ever again. All it does is just break stuff.

From reading through this thread, there seems to be several different issues going on. When I got the "installation of untrusted packages" message, I was trying to update Google Chrome and Sun Java run-times via the update app. For me, the solution was simple:

Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center -> Edit -> Software Sources -> Updates tab -> and then check the box in front of "unsupported updates."

Then everything went fine, although Sun's server speed may remind old-timers of the joys of 300 baud modems.

Well I have this entire post and tried everything but I am at a loss. This is a new computer setup and I have not messed much with linux since redhat came out. Ubuntu seems to have everything i am looking for but I am stuck with the same error as the rest and I have no clue what to do next. Ubuntu software center will not install any aps at all and I thought they were on the disk. Same error in Synaptic Package Manager and update manager. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks
Should have mentioned I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10

Basically, packages are signed with a GPG key and most likely that message is because you need to import a key.

We need more information, including the exact error message and the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list

hi everybody

"Requires installation of untrusted packages

The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources.
apport-hooks-medibuntu mplayer"

I had exactly this problem on my netbook following upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10. I use the main repository.

I tried Synaptic (System | Administration | Synaptic Package Manager) for the upgrades rather than the Update Manager and it worked fine upgrading from both the main repository and from medibuntu.

Looks like a glitch in the 10.10 upgrade.

So if you get this problem - try synaptic and if it still fails try switching the source before messing around with the keys.

Thanks Paul. one of my many mistakes was to assume latest Ubuntu versions are sufficiently debugged to at least ensure auto updates would be reasonably trouble free. I've just managed to download and install 10.04 LTS on one of my laptops. Shall try out your approach too - nothing else has worked so far.

The LTS versions have always proved sound for me. I recommend sticking with them unless you have a reason to want to use the six monthly updates.

I like to run the latest updates on my netbook so I can see what is coming up - Thanks to Ubuntu One and some basic scripting to add the few extra packages I need I can easily rebuild my netbook whenever I need to.

I was having this same issue on my desktop using version 11.04 with my regular software updates through software manager. I ended up using Synaptic as listed below and it worked fine for me. All you have to do is click on "Mark All Upgrades" and then "Apply" once you launch it. After running Synaptic and checking the Update Manager again, it had installed all of the updates.

Ok, problem solved by changing the repository to the main one.

Thank You !! I had the same problem...:popcorn:

Sorry, but that hasn't worked for me. Have tried three different repository sources, including the main server :(

Now it works,

well I checked the box for source code (in the ubuntu register)

thanks for your help & sorry to have wasted your time ^_^

Funny - I had the same problem, although my "source" box had a line through it so I unchecked it and viola, problem fixed!!

I have been having this problem about once a month or so, mainly from the Opera repo. It seems that the only fix I have found is to re-add the key. I also just got that error for Getdeb repo, but havent messed with that one yet.

i found the simplest solution ,i tried it and worked smoothly
by typing (sudo apt-get update) in terminal then try to install any software ,it will work

This solved this problem for me:

I just clicked Update Manager --> Settings...

Then on "Other Software" tab, I also checkmarked "Source Code" one that had not been on...

I then clicked Close... And did an Update again.

It worked.

Apparently, something was expecting/requiring some source code to be updated... and since Source Code was defaulted to "off".... It wasn't finding it.

Or, at least, that's my guess.

Anyway, it apparently fixed the problem.

I had the same problem with some updates from the medibuntu repository. None of the solutions mentioned involving the settings of the update manager worked for me. I found this command in order to add the medibuntu repositories:

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list &&
sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update

After doing that the problem was solved for me. I noticed that a new key has been added to the trusted software providers so I guess that's what was causing the problem.

I had this problem too. This problem was easily solved by running the following command in terminal.
sudo apt-get upgrade
Confirmation is needed to install unauthenticated updates( simply enter y whenever it asks you any y/n question.).
I hope that this method does not cause any unwanted side effects.
