What is the problem with the debian repositories?

NOTE: there's a shorter way to do this using gpg(?) - I just can't remember it (bad, bad strigi)

# apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.debian.org --recv-keys

should give you:-
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.debian.org --recv-keys

# apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.debian.org --recv-keys AED4B06F473041FA

As to what the problem is (I'm not certain) try:-
# apt-get update
# apt-get -s upgrade | less

If you have an upgrade sitting there waiting for you that's the problems, so:-
# apt-get upgrade
