Are there no updates for anything or has something gone wrong on my computer?

As of recent, I have been getting a red warning triangle in my notification bar:

Red Warning Triangle in my notification bar

When I go to my update manager, it tells me that I have not updated my package information in 14 days (I have)

Update Manager telling me that I have not updated the package info

If I update it, many sources are left at 0% with the word "Idle" instead of "Downloaded"

Many Sources left as "Idle"

And here's running sudo apt-get update:

After I update it, it still tells me that I have not updated the package information in 14 days. What's gone wrong?

Thanks, Jack :)

Running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an HPnc6400 with Intel Integrated Graphics. Located in the United Kingdom, so I'm using the GB Ubuntu update servers.

I just found this question on Launchpad Answers. It helped me to solve my problems with Ubuntu. I Hope it'll help someone else as well.

Usually, it's easier to just add the missing key.

Running sudo apt-get update will bring up an error message that says

W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: http://repository.spotify.com stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 082CCEDF94558F59

The error message ends with NO_PUBKEY 082CCEDF94558F59. You just need to get that number an run sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 082CCEDF94558F59.

Just replace 082CCEDF94558F59 with whatever apt-get update says the missing key is.

If this doesn't work, maybe a firewall is blocking your update, check the Ubuntu apt-key documentation for more information on this.

Woah, I didn't see these answers.

Anyway, eventually, I just removed the offending ppa (the Spotify one) and then it started working again. I've given both of the answers upvotes, however.
