Just guessing: once booted up and connected to the net try running this
# pacman-key --refresh-keys

After that please be sure the mirror you are using is up to date.
You may even try installing 'reflector' before going the full install to
have it select the
newest and fastest mirrors - although I'm not sure if the dependencies it
will pull does
make it worth:
# reflector -f 8 -l 20 -p http --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

By the way: next time you need support for anything else than a AUR-related
please be sure to ask it in the proper place, in this case the
[arch-general] mailing list.
