Problem during "apt-get update"


Hello Group,

I have Debiam-4.0 installed on my Desktop. When i try to update packages, the following error occurs:-

# apt-get update
Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r0 _Etch_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1 20070407-11:40] etch Release.gpg
Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r0 _Etch_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1 20070407-11:40] etch Release
.
.

.
.
W: GPG error: http://security.debian.org etch/updates Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 9AA38DCD55BE302B
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems



I don't know what wrong I am doing ? Please let me know if I am doing any mistake in the above steps.

If any body have solution to this problem then please help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Manoj and Welcome to LQ!
Are you still running Etch for a particular reason? The latest Debian release is Lenny and eventually support for Etch will be discontinued (if it hasn't happened yet). apt-get/aptitude remarks prefixed with W: are warnings not errors. Alucard has explained how to make the warning go away. I hope you have other repos in your sources.list file than the ones on your CD. You can comment them out, by the way, just put "#" (without the quotes) at the beginning of the line containing them.
cheers,
jdk

in a terminal as root:

gpg --armor --export 9AA38DCD55BE302B | apt-key add -

Thanks Alucard,

Now I am able to update my debian packages. Actually I have worked on device driver development only. So I am a newbie for the application side.
Presently I am running a Linux Embedded System Training Institute at my home town. I took this step to increase the popularity of Linux in this part of world (India). I need help of some senior persons for this work. Here Every one works on Windows and I am spreading awareness towards Open Source Community.


I am looking for a good presentation on Linux as a Desktop and as a Embedded OS. If our group has any good ppt show for it, then please forward it to me.


Thanks again to all for their valuable tips.

Regards
Manoj

Just as a future refrence, it's still just a warning message. Some repos (if you choose to use off hand repos) will not have keys, so you'll have to ignore it. I tend to ignore them all, I'll admit I'm lazy.

I am also running Etch and in the same situation as the OP.

It tells me I already have the newest version. This is after doing the update that gave me the warning after a fresh installation from a DVD set.

I've download the key to my personal keyring using gpg. But before I add it to apt's keyring it would be nice to at least do some verification that I have the correct key. (I.e. one that hasn't been maliciously altered.) Is there at least an officially published fingerprint for it or anything?

Thanks.

(@jdkaye: I believe Etch is supported until the next release which is expected the first half of next year.)

EDIT: OK, I found this "unsecured" (non-https) page which gives a link to the key and lists the fingerprint. Is that the best that can be done at this point?
