I have had this same error with a clean install of 10.10 plus similar repro additions as above.

from
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1632093

I got:-
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DB141E2302FDF932

which worked for me but am unsure if this is a safe fix. Please comment if you can confirm the correctness of the above.

Untrusted packages could compromise your system's security.
You should only proceed with the installation if you are certain that
this is what you want to do.

  libsdl-gfx1.2-4 esound-common alsa-oss festlex-cmu dasher libesd0
libmikmod2 dasher-data oss-compat festlex-poslex festvox-kallpc16k
mousetrap libaudiofile0
  libgnome-speech7 libsdl-mixer1.2 festival esound-clients
libestools2.0 libsmpeg0

after doing sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com
