I seen this a couple times, and believe it's just a temporary problem with the archive signing key. Usually gets fixed by the next day.

Hi,

You can find here an explanation how to get rid of the warning message:

Additional information can be found here:

Fwiw, the topic starter had a different error. There is indeed a new gpg key for signing the archive, but that key only exists since the 4th of January, so couldn't be the reason of Carloswill's problem.

The authorative location of the new gpg key is http://ftp-master.debian.org, if you're paranoid that that site or the DNS of it, or the connection to it, is hacked, verify the signatures on the key with the web of trust. You can import the key into apt using apt-key add.
