I had the same problem on my lucid installation. Here's how I solved it:
I had another system with the same distribution installed. It did NOT have the libreadline.so libraries in /usr/local/lib. The GPG keys WERE visible to my apt system (and System/Administration/Software Sources, etc.)
I copied the good libraries and links from my installed system. They were in /lib and /usr/lib.
I copied them into /lib/ and /usr/lib the malfunctioning system.
I deleted the copy of libreadline.so.6.1 in /usr/local/lib. This left me with a bunch of broken symbolic links.
I created a link pointing /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so.6 to /lib/libreadline.so.6
The broken links came back to life and my keys automagically reappeared. All is working.
The problem was, apparently, that the (extra) copy of libreadline.so.6 in /usr/local/lib was not the proper one. The remaining problem is that, now that my system is working, I can't replicate the fix to confirm that the problem was solely in /usr/local/lib.
If the problem was solely with that entry, as I suspect, then the WHOLE FIX would be to DELETE the /usr/local/lib copy of libreadline.so.6 and REPLACE IT with a LINK to /lib/libreadline.so.6
I'm on Karmic Koala, upgrading to Lucid Lynx.
I renamed all of the /usr/local/lib/libreadline* to /usr/local/lib/badreadline*
Just to make sure I got all of the libreadlines:
To see that the badreadlines were what I expected:
Then I created a symbolic link from /lib/readline.so.6 to /usr/local/readline.so.6:
It appears that this fixed the libreadline problem, because prior to the sudo apt-get upgrade I'm doing a sudo apt-get update:
Crunches along just fine:
I believe (somewhat) that this is past the libreadline.so.6 problem.
However, there is no "http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-ppa" URI.
Where to from here?
