    Re: Why this error?

    You problem is that the GPG key for the repository http://deb.torproject.org precise Release you have added is incorrect.

    Please, see this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2053051 with workarounds and explanations why you obtain the GPG Key error.

    Re: Why this error?

    I am not sure what causes that error but a possible fix is to enable 'Source code' in 'repositories'.

    Open Software Center-> Edit -> Software Sources -> enable (check) 'Source code'.

    Then:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    "Evolution is Nature's way of issuing upgrades."

    Try changing the 'Server' to 'Main' in 'Software Sources' and try 'sudo apt-get update' again.

    If that doesn't help either then try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install deb.torproject.org-keyring
    "Evolution is Nature's way of issuing upgrades."

    E:GPG error: http://deb.torproject.org precise Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2
    I then did sudo apt-get update and got

    so I tried:

    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package deb.torproject.org-keyring
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'deb.torproject.org-keyring'

    My friend today told me that he had tried changing some settings some days back to install the tor browser on my computer but was unsuccessful. He realised this when I showed him your post containing
    sudo apt-get install deb.torproject.org-keyring
    . He doesn't remember what settings he had tried to change but he is sure he followed exactly what was there on this site: http://nithinaneeshsct06bt.blogspot....untu-1204.html

    Now I am too afraid to touch any of those settings. Can u please advise me what I can do to revert back? Thanks

    For now, disable 'torproject' repository. You can do this from either 'Software Center' or by editing the above file directly...
    'Software Center-> Edit-> Sources -> Other Software -> uncheck/deselect
    Run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
