Aptitude thinks all packages are untrusted

I'm pretty much just guessing here, but is gpg working on your system?  
Do you have additional sources in your sources.list that aren't part of 
the Debian archives?  Is the keyring all setup correctly in 
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg?  Does that file have the proper permissions?

It can't be too many things.  Apt isn't exactly complex in this regard, 
so I'd start from there and if that provides you the answers, great.  If 
not, I'll try to come up with more scenarios it could possibly be.  What 
packages do you already have installed?
