just curious to know if there is a negative repercussion in doing the following steps even if we weren't behind a firewall?

If you are behind a proxy you may run into a problem with how the proxy is caching things. You may recieve the error message,

W: GPG error: intrepid-updates Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <>
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

To fix that do the following,

sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::http::No-Cache=True
sudo apt-get update

If that does not solve it try,

sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::BrokenProxy=true
sudo apt-get update
