Karl, either remove the CD-ROM entrie(s) from your sources.list file or from your software sources file so Apt will quit looking for it.  That is not strange and you should know that.
See if you can find the Public gpg key on  http://dl.google.com and install it.  Then you error messages shoud go away.  You might get better help if you told the list just what gui software you are using to update/upgrade with as there are several.
HTH.
