I do not see such a line in Squeeze or Sid.  What version of apt do
you have installed?

  $ dpkg --status apt | awk '/Version:/{print$NF}'

Or is /etc/cron.daily/apt from an version that has already been
updated?  That line doesn't appear in Lenny, Squeeze or Sid.

Are you actualy running Ubuntu?  Ubuntu has a call to apt-key in their
version of the package.

The Debian man page for apt-key says:

           APT in Debian does not support this command and relies on
           update instead, but Ubuntu's APT does.
