Can you check
Code:
aptitude search debian-archive-keyring
This will tell you (a) if it's already installed (the line will begin with an "i" and (b) whether the package is in your repos. You may be missing something from your sources.list file.
cheers,
jdk

Ok that means you already have debian-archive-keyring installed that's why your apt-get command wouldn't install it - it was already installed.

The messages you received originally were not errors; they were warnings. Messages beginning with "W:" are warnings; those with "E:" are errors. Your update completed successfully. apt-get was just telling you that you need to update your keyring with more recent public keys from the repos on your sources.list file. Install the gui-apt-key package if you want an easy way to update your keys.

As you can tell from the date, this is the key that needs updating.
cheers,
jdk
