This probably means you have added some 3rd-party repositories.

Check in your "Software sources" and you can remove them - or you can look over what you have there and see if you want to go ahead and continue with the "not authenticated" upgrades.

No, I mean if you have added 3rd party repositories, and they don't have (or you didn't add) a signing key, then that can cause that message when those repositories want to update a package on your machine.

It's usually not a problem, but you can remove (or disable) them if you want that message to go away.

Or, you can add a signing key if you want to keep them, but don't want the message.

As far as leaving things as they are and ONLY selecting "authorized updates", I don't know one - that doesn't meant there isn't one, only I don't know of it.
