Don't know about your other sources, but debian unstable seems to be

The non-us repository is not used any more so this is expected and you
should remove non-us from your sources.list file.

Package signing is enabled now. I get this error as well, but I can
still install packages from this archive so have not worried about
doing anything about it yet.

I don't know what's going on in the mirror system. I had some weirdness
over the last 3 or 4 days where I wasn't showing any new upgrades.
One or two days I don't think anything of it, when it stretches to 3 or
4 I start to wonder. Looking at the obsoleted packages in synaptic
displayed the xorg packages as obsolete and checking the available
versions showed that an earlier set of packages was listed as the
current unstable release. ???
In my case I made a copy of my sources.list and used apt-spy to find
a mirror and create a new sources list, then added contrib and non-free
back to the created entries and added my additional repositories back
into the new file and everything seems to be in sync again.
