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
