Hi,

you can try to clean out pacman's cache by:

Code:

# pacman -Sc
or just remove the offending package(s) from the cache (/var/cache/pacman/pkg/). then you may want to re-check the mirrors you're using and make sure you have the most up-to-date ones. after that you need to refresh the mirrors by:

Code:

# pacman -Syy
and finally refresh the keys by: (I assume you configured pacman and initialized the keyring already)

Code:

# pacman-key --refresh-keys
then try to install the package again. also it is a good idea to read up about `pacman-key` and `pacman` at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman-key and https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman if you haven't already

you can also add unofficial keys to the database. read up about this in the wiki page.
