i tried doing
apt-get install --fix-broken --no-checksig =didnt work
apt-get --fix-broken install --no-checksig -didnt work
apt-get install --fix-broken , --no-checksig
apt install --fix-broken --no checksig
apt install --no-checksig --fix-broken
i also tried apt-get install --fix-broken --hold
and any other combination i could think of but didnt work does any one here know
how do i issue the --no-checksig command with --fix-broken

What were you installing when the problem occurred? Was it an upgrade or dist-upgrade?

Try running "apt-get clean" to purge your cache of packages and force it to download them again. I don't know if that will help, but it might fix things if you have a corrupt package.

You can also try running "apt-get reinstall" on the individual packages one at a time. I don't know if that will work either, but if apt will let you do it, it might help you narrow down which package(s) are causing the problem.

Edit: There are also two flags that might help you. -V will give you a verbose output, and -s will run a simulated action instead of the real thing. They might help you in your diagnosis.

You can disable gpg checking by having:
GPG::Check false;
in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/gpg-checker.conf
