well, probably a problem with the debian keyring for jessie not being
available on the raspberry.
$ man dget
reveals the "-u" flag, that allows you to download even if the signature
could not be verified (if you are worried about the integrity of the
dgetted files, you should of course *not* do that and instead search the
web on how to properly solve the problem)

i think the validation failure prevents the *proper* unpacking of the
sources (e.g. applying a few patches)
