Debian etch->lenny, signature error


Hi all,

I'm trying to upgrade a Debian Etch box to Lenny. I've opened /etc/apt/sources.list, did a global replace etch->lenny. Then I did "apt-get update" as root. After some activity, I got the following message:

W; GPG error: http://security.debian.org lenny/updates Release: the following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY xxxxxxxxxxxxx

And then another error of the same nature for the different, FTP site. Then it said I might to run apt-get update to correct that.

Any ideas, please? Where would I get a public key?

Code:
apt-get install debian-keyring debian-archive-keyring
You will probably prompted that this packages can not be authenticated, ignore this and press Y. After this do again
Code:
apt-get update
