The keys used to authenticate the root DNS zone for DNSSEC are in the
process of being updated.  Currently two such keys are in use, but from
October 11th only the newer key will be in use.

Further information regarding the key change process can be found at

The dns-root-data package includes information about such keys,
allowing other packages to use them for validation. This update ensures
that the newer key is marked as valid, ensuring that records will still
be able to be validated using DNSSEC after the older key is no longer
being used.

If you use dns-root-data then we strongly recommend that you install
this update.
