Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.11-1+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

There are two repositories which are blocked from "aptitude update" on
the basis of "invalid signature", when in fact gpg reports the
signatures are valid.

* 1st package: gc2latex *

  To reproduce, these steps are taken:

    1) apt-key adv --recv-key 0x5145B9CD752C0197
    2) gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --edit-key 0x5145B9CD752C0197 trust
    3) Selected full trust ("4")

  To prove that gpg find the signature good:

  $ gpg --verify --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg <(curl -s http://wertarbyte.de/apt/Release.gpg) <(curl -s http://wertarbyte.de/apt/Release)

  results in:

    gpg: Signature made Wed 25 May 2011 11:15:52 PM CEST
        gpg:                using DSA key 5145B9CD752C0197
        gpg: Good signature from "Wertarbyte.de (Software Signing Key) <kontakt at wertarbyte.de>" [unknown]
        gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
        gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
        Primary key fingerprint: CC49 F74C 816C 499C 899A  4288 5145 B9CD 752C 0197

  This is the deb line in sources.list:

    deb http://wertarbyte.de/apt/ ./
  When doing "aptitude update", the output is:

    W: GPG error: tor+http://wertarbyte.de/apt ./ Release: The following signatures were invalid: CC49F74C816C499C899A42885145B9CD752C0197
    E: The repository 'tor+http://wertarbyte.de/apt ./ Release' is not signed.
    E: Failed to download some files

* 2nd package: pwsafe *

  It's the same problem for pwsafe, which has the sources.list entry:
    deb http://packages.steve.org.uk/pwsafe/jessie/ ./

  the gpg key of which can be installed this way:
    wget -O - http://packages.steve.org.uk/pwsafe/apt-key.pub | apt-key add -

Note the version info below is on Jessie, but the same problem occurs on recent versions in Stretch.
