Does This Looks Familiar?

You've probably followed instructions from:

And, you've probably ran those lines:

Here is a solution/workaround/magic-trick
to resolve this pesky little issue:

Run this, (while still under su): gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wheezy-backports-main.list
and replace the content with this one:
deb wheezy-backports main
deb stable main
deb stable/updates main

Save (of course), quit gedit,
and run this line(while still under su): aptitude install debian-archive-keyring.

Finally run (while still under su): apt-get update.

You'll see something like this:
