This error, when checking for new programs or updates keeps on coming up:

W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.GPG error: http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/hardy-security/Release

W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Please look at the screen shot below. I'm using an Huwai E220 on Hardy, and actually, could you please have a look at my error that I'm having upgrading to 8.10? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=963291

Please help!

Try changing your download server in Software Sources.

Nope, just made the checking slower from the main server than the Irish one. This error came up and think it's the same one:

Open a terminal and try

sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::http::No-Cache=true

Actualy, I clicked the "more" in the server selection in Software Sources. It said the best one for me was "Switzerland" and was faster than ever. It works perfectly with the Distro Upgrade wizard, which didn't work before. I'll try your other command in the Terminal later. Thanks
