Hi,

please, post the contents of the file /etc/apt/sources.list

It appears that it contains some external (e.g. not debian.org) repository which you miss the signing key for.

Either get the signing key for that repository or (prefered) remove the repository from sources.list and only use the debian.org repos.

HTH,
Robert

Just also a note..Even though it shows error..it wont effect you installing packages that are from that repo..Youll just get that every time you do a apt-get update..And when you install a package that is coming from that repo it will ask you with a y/n to install packages..Having the key lets apt know its a trusted source.

Please, let's be clear. It is not showing an ERROR. It is showing a WARNING; a warning that apt-get cannot confirm the identity of one of the repos. W: = warning and E: = error. That is, the task is being completed successfully. bigrigdrivers' link gives the solution to making the warning message go away.
cheers,
jdk
