Cannot update Mandrake 9.2

When I attempt to update MDK 9.2 all the packages say "bad signature, cannot open file" or something to that effect. After clicking OK it says "Cannot install package blah.blah.blah.rpm." How can I get MDK to update?

Bad signiture usually means the file is corrupt because of a download error. I would delete the "update_source" package mirror and use a different mirror for updates. If that doesn't work, clear the /tmp/SRPMS(as root) folder and redownload everything.
