I am getting this messages when I run apt-get update -

Ign edgy/main Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-security/main Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-backports/main Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-security/restricted Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-backports/restricted Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-backports/universe Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-security/universe Translation-en_NZ
Ign edgy-backports/multiverse Translation-en_NZ
Err edgy-security Release

W: GPG error: edgy-security Release: The
following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu
Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster at>
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Running apt-get update does not fix the problem. I realise that I need
to update the GPG key but do not know how to do it.

Guidance on this matter would be most appreciated.
