Update notifier and the repo lists

The update notifier signalled me that there are new packages available
for download. Click on it, then click on "install". A new dialogue pops
up reporting that *all* packages are *NOT AUTHENTICATED*. A little
worried I open a terminal, run "sudo apt-get update" and then "sudo
apt-get upgrade". Not a word from 'apt-get' about unauthenticated
packages.

I turn back to update notifier and now, with updated repo lists, it
doesn't complain about unauthenticated packages.

What's up? Is it known behaviour?
