    Hey,

    If you just need help (because the thread is solved), I got the same problem and this worked for me:

    First I read this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...70&postcount=3 after I googled it. It was not the solution to the problem but it worked very similar. I opened:

    System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager

    Then:

    Settings->Repositories


    and first looked whether the checkbox "Software restricted by copyright or legal issues" was checked (in my case it was)

    After this I went to the tab "Other Software" and checked "Canonical Partners" (if you have Source Code installed you may check "Canonical Partners(Source Code)" too) to allow Ubuntu to download from this sources.

    Result: All updates should work as before.

    Re: The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sour

    Didn't work for me either, as all those options were already checked. In my case, I had re-enabled a repo for Opera web browser that was of course disabled during the upgrade to Maverick, and it is this that is halting my upgrade process. Besides the fact I find it odd that http://deb.opera.com/opera/ is looked at as an untrusted source, I thought there would have been a way to just ignore that and continue regardless, but this isn't the case. It just goes back to the Update Manager's main display, and I can find nothing useful in Software Sources... except that I can disable that repo there, which is something I want to avoid (especially since there is a new version of Opera for download). Any other solutions?

    in response to the key with opera, last week they released a new version which the whole purpose was just to install a new key. the old key was set to expire this month (jan 2011)

    http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog...-linux-freebsd

    if you can't upgrade via the update manager. just download opera from opera's website and re-install with the new package.

    actually i solved this myself... another option would be to create a text file and name it A2019EA84E7532C8.gpg make sure to make the suffix .gpg and then go to: http://deb.opera.com/ and copy the key from the bottom of the page where it says: BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK to where it says END PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK

    then just add it to the authentication sources by importing it using the "Import Key File..." button under System-> Administration-> Software Sources and navigate to the Authentication tab.

    just navigate to the folder you saved the .gpg in and select it... and voisla! you may have to delete the old key from the repository i'm not sure.

    also you can delete the .gpg file as it is no longer necessary

    or in terminal execute the following command:


    Code:
    wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
    i believe any of these suggestions would work
