    I would tick them and keep them if I were you. These allow access to third party software:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu

    The "Third-Party Software" tab is where you will be able to add the Canonical Partner Repositories. You will see two Canonical Partner repositories listed - one for applications and another for source code (src). The partner repositories offer access to proprietary and closed-source software and are not enabled by default.

    OK, run this command in a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 5A9BF3BB4E5E17B5
    This will get you the key.
