A quickie before lunch :

GPG error: lucid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY ABF5BD827BD9BF62

Installing Nginx on my bash on windows 10 installation.  This is suprisingly very similar as on Ubuntu straight on bare metal, so the fix is the same :

In short :

cat nginx_signing.key | sudo apt-key add - 
apt-get update
apt-get install nginx

live :

$ wget
