    What does this error message mean?

    When I run Update Manager, after it has seemed to look at, currently, 52 packages I get this message:

    W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net intrepid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 60D11217247D1CFF


    What does that mean, and how do I put it right?

    Thanks.

    I've had the same for a week or two. What gives?

    You don't have the required keys installed to 'trust' the source.

    If you trust the source:

    Run from the terminal:
    Code:
    gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 60D11217247D1CFF
    then
    Code:
    gpg --export --armor 60D11217247D1CFF | sudo apt-key add -
    then happy camping.

    So it turns out that this is the people we got Open Office 3 from. But after I'd downloaded OOo 3 I deleted this unofficial key, so it's a bit annoying trace has remained.
