I am unable to update through software updater. After clicking install now, it shows "requires installation from untrusted package".

Looks like key error issue. Some repository site's gpg key is missing maybe. run in terminal (sudo apt-get update), post the output(last section/errors). – shantanu Mar 13 '14 at 4:43

might be useful to look at your sources file you can get it like this:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

but you might try this:

sudo apt-get clean
cd /var/lib/apt
sudo mv lists lists.old
sudo mkdir -p lists/partial
sudo apt-get clean 
sudo apt-get update
