So why is APT only reporting 4bytes a second if your browser is getting almost 4MiB a second?

Are you sure you ran `apt-get clean`?

What is the output of:
Code: Select all
ls /var/cache/apt/archives/


I notice in your sig you have a lot of links to the wiki. I have tried reading the Debian reference document and at times it's quite dry, but quite thorough. I am wondering if the wiki is a bit more adjusted to someone who is very new to linux? Thoughts?

regarding the message from apt:
you probably miss the keyring.
Do apt-cache search keyring
perhaps apt-cache search keyring --names-only
and dpkg -l | grep keyring
You probably miss debian-keyring, or a similar name. Install it, ignore the warning, run apt-get update again and when installing rsync the error warning should be gone.

regarding documentation: i would read what i got problems with, no matter if wiki, reference, manpage. In general i prefer to ask in a forum or IRC channel, usually someone there knows a) what is the solution or b) where to find the according documentation online.
You might try the Ubuntu wiki (for someone rather new to linux). If i got a quick question, i usually use it (i go to the German one, which is good for my purpose, hence i don't know the English one well). For most, but not all subjects, of course.

I find the Debian Reference to be one of the finest pieces of documentation I have ever come accross -- the trick is to read the parts that are applicable to your problem rather than trying to plough through it all in one sitting.

It is definately worth the effort.

For your authentication problem: you need to add the current secure key to APT -- guide here:
