There is an easy way to test this.
In /var/lib/apt/list you will find the Release and Release.gpg files
from your sources. Just verify them manually:

|$ gpg --verify /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.debian.org_debian_dists_sid_Release.gpg \
| /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.debian.org_debian_dists_sid_Release
|gpg: Signature made Fri Jul  1 21:32:07 2005 CEST using DSA key ID 4F368D5D
|gpg: Can't check signature: public key not found

Even when the key is not on your keyring, gpg will tell you wich key is
needed.
Just check all the Release/Release.gpg pairs in /var/lib/apt/lists and
you will know wich keys you have to add.

If you have some unofficial sources for debian packages, then it is
quite possible that they aren't signed. (You will find then only a
Release file without a corresponding Release.gpg)
