Well, switching from http.debian.net to deb.debian.org seems to have 
fixed that one. The error relating to that has gone away.

I downloaded the file from the above URL, and copied it as root to 
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d as instructed. Since all the other files in that 
directory were owned by root I made sure this one was too. And I renamed 
it to add .gpg on the end. It seems to have made the problem noticeably 
worse. On doing an aptitude update I now get:

W: GPG error: http://dl.google.com stable Release: The following 
signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: 
NO_PUBKEY A040830F7FAC5991 NO_PUBKEY 1397BC53640DB551 
W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs: 
CBF8D6FD518E17E1

Which is worse than it was before, it is now complaining about more keys.

Help...
