First of all, this looks like a *very* old version of
torbrowser-launcher. You should probably update your system once in a
while :)

Upstream has a ticket about this:

In short, torbrowser-launcher includes the IDs of the keys used to sign
torbrowser releases. However, the latest release was signed with a new key.

We'll prepare a patched version for Debian, however, this will not be
available for old stable unless someone backports it there.
