This means that apt cannot verify the *second* signature in the .gpg files 
because it doesn't know about that key.  However, the packages will still be 
trusted because the *first* signature is valid and trusted.

The key used for the first signature is set to expire in June or July.  The 
key used for the second signature is the new key that shouldn't expire until 
Squeeze is released, IIRC.

Upgrade debian-archive-keyring to the version in Lenny.

(If for some reason apt complains that you are attempting to install an 
untrusted package, *that* is a real problem, and you should stop the upgrade 
and get further advise.)
