This is because you have not signed the key. You can turn it off through your /etc/pacman.conf file.

Under options just add this line.

SigLevel = Never
then run

pacman -Syy

pacman -S Package Name

Or do some work to keep your system secure and try to solve the problem.

Is the error you get this : Signature from "User <>" is unknown trust, installation failed ?
if so, the answer is on the pacman page of the archwiki.

If you get a different error, please post the exact error message.
