    W: GPG error: http://download.virtualbox.org lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY

    I posted a similar thread 3 hours ago and I haven't found a fix yet.

    I'm going to start looking elsewhere and will post back if I find anything.

    Re: Public key

    I've been trying this in terminal:

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 313D312748A22A95; gpg --export --armor 313D312748A22A95 | sudo apt-key add -

    Of course, you have to use your own key error in place of the key I'm using.

    This is the prescribed way to fix this problem as far as I can tell, yet it won't work for me.

    Your guess is as good as mine on this one.

    Still searching.

    Re: Public key

    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys KEYID
    where KEYID is the "series of numbers".

    That won't work, since that repository is on virtualbox.org servers, not on ubuntu's servers.

    Just follow the instructions they have on the Virtualbox site for adding the repository and importing the GPG key:

    Code:
    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
