    Requires installation of untrusted packages

    Hey out there in the void of the ether,

    I want to install application using the ubuntu software centre;
    but all i get is this error message:

    Requires installation of untrusted packages
    "The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources."

    can anyone explain in simple words (and commands) how to solve the issue?

    thanks!

    Basically, packages are signed with a GPG key and most likely that message is because you need to import a key.

    We need more information, including the exact error message and the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list

    See the link I gave you. It works for the default repositories.

    If you need more specific assistance you need to provide us with more details. What repository are you trying to add ? what error message are you getting ?

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    and then
    Code:
    gpg --list-keys
    from the terminal?

    Ok, problem solved by changing the repository to the main one.
