Is this a question about Ubuntu or a PPA (Personal Package Archive)?

error reads.
W:GPG error:http:PPA.launchpad.net.gutsy Release:
The following signature could'nt be verified because the public key is not available:
NO - PUBKEY 8B9FBE5158B3AFA9.

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 7A6BC20C4FE04DADD10837608DB7F87A2B97B7B8
