The problem is from synaptic creating /etc/apt/trusted.gpg with too
narrow permissions, a file which is no longer used by apt (instead all
keys are in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d)
You can just delete /etc/apt/trusted.gpg or change the permissions to
644 (instead of 600 now).
Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
