When trying to install the latest version of gwoffice 0.97 I get:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gwoffice : Depends: libgranite1 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

how do I solve this problem?

Check the thread at eidete: Depends: libgranite1 but it is not installable, it says you need stuff from elementary-os in your sources.list

 # sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the two lines for 12.10

 deb quantal main
 deb-src quantal main

or for 12.04 as in my case

 deb precise main
 deb-src precise main

# sudo apt-get update

For the public key error

 # sudo gpg --keyserver --recv-key BF36996C4E1F8A59
 # sudo gpg -a --export BF36996C4E1F8A59 | sudo apt-key add -

 # sudo apt-get update

And then further update should work as usual
