I refreshed the keylist with pacman-key no help, I finally just tagged TrustAll at the end of the line in packman.conf and it worked fine. There are screwed up signatures there.
The issue is in your local keyring. Check all of the Arch Master Keys, make sure they're all signed by your local master key.
Can someone please explain why this key trust issue happened? In the past 7 years, running 10+ Arch boxes I have never had to adjust the trust on any key within the arch-keyring. Why all of a sudden, and why on only one box, did I have to --lsign-key for the eschwartz93 key? That is why this seemed so bizarre.
I have 5 other arch boxes running and updated and none of them experienced this problem. Only my spare laptop that I had not run/updated since last month showed this behavior.
For all other boxes this had been seamless (and that is a good thing). Is this some known random behavior that if you don't update between time A and time B, then you are likely to have to manually set the trust on any new keys added to the web-of-trust between points A & B?
I'm just trying to figure out what happened and what to expect in the future.
