the public keys from those repositories must be imported in apt-get.

you need to have gnupg package installed.

insert a command like this :

$ gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 394D199524C52AC3

$ gpg –armor –export 394D199524C52AC3 | sudo apt-key add -

this should resolve the trick.

alternatively you could search in apt-cache for the keyring if exists.

The first command will work, not the second. Below are the ones I use that work as root since I don't have sudo set up:

#gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 24C52AC3
#gpg --armor --export 24C52AC3 | apt-key add -

that means you are not root!

or

that there's a process hanging of apt in other console. try to kill, or reboot and then try apt-get update again.

also I am not sure about the cdrom entry the one which is not commented. i would remove it. it has no use.

Make sure synaptic is not open as it is an application running apt, you can only run one instance of apt at a time, when you try to run a second instance you'll get that error.
