I use Ubuntu 10.04 as my system operation. When use command apt-get update in terminal, I get error message :

The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 40976EAF437D05B5

If we get error message Ubuntu public key is not available, It means that my APT doesn’t have needed the public key. In the example above, finger print of the public key is 40976EAF437D05B5. To solve Ubuntu public key is not available problem, we can use command :
