When adding a new apt repository and calling apt-get update, the following message indicates that the signing key for that repository has not been added to the apt keyring:
Code:
The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available
These keys can be added in manually, although this may vary between repositories. For example, on the debian-multimedia.org, the keys can be obtained by installing the package debian-multimedia-keyring.

On others, the PGP signature can be downloaded and added in to the system manually using apt-key. For example, from the Opera browser repository:
Code:
wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | apt-key add -
