Reading package lists… Error!
or like :
W: GPG error: http://archive.ubuntu.com jaunty Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key
May be your repository configuration in you PC/laptop/server was dirty, and off course you can clean them up using this steps below :
mv lists lists.old
mkdir -p lists/partial
Hope it will work with You, have a nice try.
