I'm running an inherited Debian Squeeze server (read: I just got this new job and the server was setup by the last guy), and I'm having an issue on the apt-get. The error at the end that comes up when doing a sudo apt-get update is W: GPG error: http://hwraid.le-vert.net squeeze Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 6005210E23B3D3B4. I already referred to "no public key available" on apt-get update, but that solution did not work for me (sudo aptitude install debian-keyring debian-archive-keyring).

What else can I try? Where should I look next?

From the homepage - Debian Packages:

wget -O - http://hwraid.le-vert.net/debian/hwraid.le-vert.net.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

The repository is not a default Debian repository. It's third party software. Debian does not ship with all possible keys. You have to decide if you trust them. If you do, install the key as mentioned above.
