Hey thanks, I have been on google for the past couple of hours though so my advice is if you don't want to help don't reply dude I still get this btw from following many answers

gpg: key 437D05B5: public key "Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found


and also

sean@Debian:/etc/apt$ gpg --import pubkeysomething gpg: key 437D05B5: "Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: unchanged: 1
sean@Debian:/etc/apt$ gpg --armor --export 437D05B5 | apt-key add - gpg: can't open `/etc/apt/trusted.gpg'
gpg: keydb_get_keyblock failed: eof

You neglected to run the apt-key command as root.

My advice to you is to read this.

I am helping, be it in my own way. Learning to help one's self goes a long way.

The instructions are right on the backports.org page, if you can't be bothered to READ do you seriously expect people to be able to help you?

Quote:

If you are using etch and you want apt to verify the downloaded backports you can import backports.org archive’s key into apt:

apt-get install debian-backports-keyring

or

gpg --keyserver hkp://subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 16BA136C
gpg --export | apt-key add -

or

wget -O - http://backports.org/debian/archive.key | apt-key add -
