I get the error message "requires installation of untrusted packages" every time I try to update after entering my password. There are now 55.4MB of updates. Never happened before and the updates came automatically from Ubuntu. What should I do? I use Ubuntu 12.04

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

it should tell you what package is not trusted, you can always --force-yes –  TheFiddlerWins Sep 11 '13 at 20:44
I agree. The --force-yes command is also there for a reason :) –  TheFiddlerWins Sep 12 '13 at 14:38
@EliahKagan I think this is a better duplicate: Update Error: Require Installation Of Untrusted Packages. The question you posted doesn't seem to tackle if the problem is with missing gpg keys. –  Alaa Ali Sep 12 '13 at 17:55
