The problem persisted - however, now it doesn't happen.  I had apt-get
reinstall a couple of packages that consistantly produced the error
message yesterday, and I don't get the error message today.  Go figure.

Try installing the debian-keyring package if it's missing. Otherwise,
these are the keys I have in my keyring:
