Bug#412680: debian-installer: does not properly handle archive in case of key failure

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I was today trying to install etch from debian-testing-i386-CD-1.iso
dated 2007-02-26. Unfortunately, I chose a partially desynced mirror
(ftp.de.d.o), and the installer failed on me silently.

After choosing "install software" and completing tasksel, the
installer stopped with a progress bar stalling at 5 % and hanging
there. Inspecting the process list showed an idle aptitude process. I
guess that the aptitude was hanging at the prompt "Untrusted packages
could compromise your system's security".

The installer should check and catch this condition and not hang
