Any log message?

Normally unauthenticated packages should be installed, since FAI sets
APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated true

There's an option in sources.list which also may help. From man

trusted=yes can be set to indicate that packages from this source are
always authenticated even if the Release file is not signed or the
signature can't be checked.
