This is a new feature of the apt-get system that guarantee the authenticity of servers for updating Debian.


Simply type the following commands, taking care to replace the number of the key that displayed in the error message:

gpg --keyserver pgpkeys.mit.edu --recv-key  010908312D230C5F
gpg -a --export 010908312D230C5F | sudo apt-key add -
