It's caused by a plugin script that checks the rpm integrity. Indeed
introduced with the latest apt rpm update. But man apt tells you:

Do not check the integrity of the packages to be
installed. It can be used if the integrity check
fails for 1 or more packages, but the packages have
been obtained from a save origin. Configuration
item: RPM::GPG-Check.

The Configuration item RPM::GPG-Check can be set to false in the file
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/gpg-checker.conf (make true -> false) if you don't want to
check the rpm integrity.

The plugin scripts are located at:

Hope this helps.
