I tried that dists on my own in case that was the problem, but it made
no difference /dists or nothing after org, stretch or testing, same result.

This is getting too secure for me, I couldn't even import the downloaded
key file verified and through an encrypted channel...

But your trick worked, imported the multimdedia-key rerun without the
[trusted=yes] tag and all is OK

Thank you, you made a waste of a day receive high value.  I now have the
other half of the weekend to investigate why all my multimedia packages
have multimedia-upgrades/revisions within testing.

OK, it worked, but what was the issue would I ever know?  Too many keys
in the keyring? I don't think so.  Just for kicks I added some other
distributions repository (testing based) and it didn't have such a
problem.  Maybe some public key-certificate somewhere where multimedia
is not registered yet as trustworthy?

Thank you again, you really made my day, I was going mad with this
thinking it is a much deeper problem.
