I'm trying to load packages from the archive.canonical.com lucid partner repository, and am getting:

W: GPG error: http://archive.canonical.com lucid Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

whenever I do apt-get update.

This happened right after the Ubuntu 11.10 release this morning. It looks like the Release file got updated, but the Release.gpg did not in http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/lucid/

Does anyone have ideas?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Are you still having this problem? It seems like it should have been temporary. Both Release and Release.gpg have been updated since. –  andrewsomething Feb 25 '12 at 2:26
It appears that this was probably a temporary issue. –  jrg Feb 27 '12 at 23:02
