Smile gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found in Debian etch


When I do a 'apt-get update' on a Debian system I get the error
'No public key available for the following key iD: <key id>'
I then did a
gpg --keyserver --recv <key id>

But this results in the error
gpgkeys: key <key id> not found on keyserver
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found

if I remove 'etch main' from /etc/apt/sources.list the problem goes away. There appears to be a package with an invalid key on 'etch main'?

Any ideas on how to fix this?
