Try this first, replace the numbers in my post with the number that you need.

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv 6AF0E1940624A220


gpg --export --armor 6AF0E1940624A220 | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update


type these commands in the terminal


Then type alt + F2 and type update-manager -d

It was in the screen shot that you gave in the link you had in your post, the NO-PUB KEY number.

one last question, is there anyway to update hardy to jaunty without uninstalling my games and etc? if not is there a possible way to transfer my games?

Personally I say keep Hardy, Jaunty might be newer but its very buggy in my opinion.

I do not believe you can jump upgrade on line only go form one release to the next. You would have to install for a cd or dvd.

As far as games, it would depend where they were on the drive partition. If you have s separate home directory on its own partition, when you do the install from the cd you can tell the installer not to format the home directory and everything there will remain untouched.

Jaunty has been very stable for me. I have not seen any issues on my desktop or laptop computers.

For you maybe, but I cant use it because its too slow.
Even with effects turned off.
