debsig cant verify the .deb signatures


my apt-get/dpkg always tells me "debsig: origin signature check failed".
the error occured after i installed a few new packages but i do not remember that they had something to do with apt-get or dpkg.
im running debian unstable at the moment.
dpkg -i --force-bad-verify works, of course. but it sucks to install every single .deb.
