When I run aptitude update I get, amongst the successful update reports,
the following error messages:
W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs:
W: Failed to fetch http://http.debian.net/debian/dists/jessie-backports/main/i18n/Translation-enIndex: Hash Sum mismatch
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
E: Couldn't rebuild package cache
I'm not sure if the warning about the key and the second warning are
related or not, I've got my doubts.
They're not. The key ID is a very well known issue (at least on the
forums), to do with google's repository. They started using a new key
last April and didn't tell anyone.
The hash sum mismatch is usually a passing issue: updating while the
repository/mirror itself is in the process of updating. If it keeps
showing up, that mirror is probably borked. Try deb.debian.org instead
The key ID can be fixed in several ways. I usually suggest:
wget -qO- https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo
apt-key add -
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 1397BC53640DB551
