How do I deal with “unauthenticated sources” errors in the Software Center?

I'm trying to install software updates but I always get this error.

  Requires installation of untrusted packages  The action would require the installation of packages from unauthenticated sources.  Details : gir1.2-mutter-3.0 gnome-tweak-tool libmutter0 mutter-common  

I don't know what it's asking me to do. Please help.

Cheers.

sudo mkdir -p lists/partial

Solution:2

You can try to select a differnent mirror. Run

sudo software-properties-gtk

In the Ubuntu Software tab, Download from, select via the drop-down an other server. After this, run

sudo apt-get update

Hopefully this will resolve your issue.
