It's a common problem. You need to add the proper key. Do this:

When you have upgraded apt, you will likely encounter something like this error message:

W: GPG error: ftp://ftp.nerim.net unstable Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 07DC563D1F41B907

This particular one is solved by doing the following:

1) open the Konsole, type su and enter your root password
2) then type: gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 1F41B907
3) then type: gpg --armor --export 1F41B907 | sudo apt-key add -
4) and finally: apt-get update
It'll also work for other sources that give you the same error. Just substitute the last eight digits of the pubkey number in the error message.
