Answer to the question

A quick web search leads to this as a solution for your first error:  http://askubuntu.com/questions/766883/there-is-no-public-key-available-for-the-following-key-ids-1397bc53640db551.

 

Going forward, consider using the support forum for the Linux distribution you're using.  You'd probably get more direct and quicker responses from there.
