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
gpg: no writable keyring found: eof
gpg: error reading `-': general error
gpg: import from `-' failed: general error
sean@Debian:/etc/apt$

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?

Debian Backports
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 -
