Debian, apt-update not working


Hello all!

Been using Debian as my server for 2 years now and all of a sudden when I type apt-get update I get this error:

W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs:
4D270D06F42584E6

I didn't change anything the only thing being one on this server is a monthly update and adding virtual hosts to Apache.

Any ideas?

No, apt-get is not broken. The W: means warning and not error. What's happened is that one of the repos on your sources.list file has had its gpg key expire and got a new one. Just feed your gui-apt-key the 4D270D06F42584E6 string and it will put an update public key on your keyring and the warning will disappear. You can still use apt-get with the warning. It will just ask you for a confirmation that you want you use an insecure site.
Cheers,
jdk
