Hi folks--

When I run apt-get update, I get

You need the package debian-archive-keyring. This annoyed me for about a
month before I got around to looking for the cause.  Apparently the
requirement for the above appeared in late January (it is dated 18 January.)

That eliminated the error, Thanks!

But I'm still a bit puzzled because debian-archive-keyring is _not_ installed on the machine that didn't report the errors. AFAIK, both machines have the same apt-get policies, and all sources are debian.org machines.

One difference between the two machines is that the one which reported the error is an older installation. It was first installed with potato/stable ~5 years ago and has been repeatedly dist-upgraded. The machine without the error was first installed in Feb. with sarge/stable. Hmmm...

I'm getting the same error for ftp.nerim.net . I installed debian-archive-keyring, but the error persists. Can anyone tell me what the problem is, and how to solve it?
