GPG error: natty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 16126D3A3E5C1192

I think I selected to install things from when I used the expert mode installer, but I got the above error when doing apt-get update. How do I fix this?

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.

Official repositories like "Ubuntu Extras" are actually linked and have packages. To install this pubkey, merely run apt-get install ubuntu-extras-keyring (You can find others with a command like apt-cache search repo |grep .-keyring which also works for Debian) – Adam Katz Oct 7 '15 at 23:26

Had the same problem as above on my 11.10 laptop. What's more, I had an annoying red triangle right next to my battery indicator. Tried a few other suggestions around the internet, but this worked great. – thebretness Dec 13 '11 at 4:47
