That's a pity, don't you think so ? I think Debian should renew the
archive key, so we can still verify packages signatures.
You can still verify them. Key expiration doesn't make existing
signatures invalid. [Indeed, gpgv doesn't even check for expired keys.]

With apt ? I had to set allowunauthenticated = 1 in apt.conf, otherwise apt wouldn't install anything.

Can you give us the warning/error you're getting?

As other as pointed out if the expiration date is not extended on the key your out of luck! :)


One workaroungd could be:
1)   Download all required packages
2)  Verify the downloaded packages using 'gpg --verify'
3)  Install the verified pkgs

The best workaround would be to upgrade to Debian Stretch (6 to 7, 7 to 8, 8 to 9)! :)

For sake of completeness:
  apt-key update              - update keys using the keyring package
  apt-key net-update          - update keys using the network
