Default recuring problems with verification of VirtualBox downloads

I am having recuring problems with the irtualBox archive. I am getting
errors that look like this:

W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is
not updated and the previous index files will be used.GPG error:
http://download.virtualbox.org lucid Release: The following signatures were
invalid: BADSIG 54422A4B98AB5139 Oracle Corporation (VirtualBox archive
signing key) <info@virtualbox.org>

I found an article that sugested cleaning up various files in /var/cache
and /var/lib for partial downloads, and I have managed to get this fixed a
couple of times by doing that. I am having a bitof a problem finding that
exact article at the moment, but I _think_ I have cleaned these up, but I
am back to getting this error on several diferent machines.

Any sugestions?

I haven't had that issue on Ubuntu 12.04 and my only suggestion is to
see what [Virtualbox homepage] says, which you have done.

[Virtualbox homepage]:https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

```
What to do when experiencing The following signatures were invalid:
BADSIG ... when refreshing the packages from the repository?

# sudo -s -H
# apt-get clean
# rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*
# rm /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/*
# apt-get clean
# apt-get update
```
