Reading package lists... Done
W: GPG error: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com raring Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

How do I fix this?

Also getting installation errors about installing untrusted packages in ubuntu software center.

"Requires installation of untrusted packages"

   libgconf2-4 libxss1

This occurs when installing ANY application. different errors per app.

Never had this problem in Ubuntu until now. I'm about ready to leave and go back to Deb, but I like the look and feel of Ubuntu.

Try all this first (as root of course):

# apt-get install -f
# dpkg --configure -a
# apt-get --fix-broken install
# apt-get --fix-missing install

If that doesn't work, try to install aptitude.

# apt-get install aptitude

And run

# aptitude update
# aptitude upgrade

This did not work, instead it crashed my pc. Instead I just tried re-installing the whole thing. Again did not work. With this I tried downloading from another source (even though the SHA and Checksum were fine) and burned again on low speed, now working fine. I wish I could figure out what happened... Just a shot in the dark, but I checked my packets on my router, and they showed that I was losing packets when initially installing and downloading initial packages, would this be why the problems were prevalent? –  Lord_Rahl May 22 '13 at 3:06

@Lord_Rahl That could be the problem. I see no reason those commands would have screwed anything up; they are standard maintenance commands for broken packages and not dangerous in any way that I know of. –  bntser May 22 '13 at 3:19
