Thank you.
You have upgraded apt/aptitude to the testing or unstable branch and it uses gpg to verify the packages. If you want to get rid of these messages then you should do a search on using secure apt and as root import the keys into the root keyring then use the apt-key add to add the key to the apt keyring.

Edit: Installing the package debian-keyring can help get rid of the messages as well.
