Thanks very much for your reply. I took the file I had previously 
downloaded, and had been placing in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ , and ran 
apt-key add on that file. It responded "OK", and after that aptitude 
update runs with zero errors.

Putting the file in trusted.gpg.d didn't work, importing it using 
apt-key add did. Given Sven's experience to the contrary, I am at a loss 
to explain that.

But what is important to me for now is that, at last, both problems from 
this thread are resolved and I get no errors when I run aptitude update. 
Thanks very much to everyone who contributed.
