As far as I can see, this does not ensure that all cache directories are
writable before attempting to download the signature file alongside the
package file.

I am going to make a declaration that this "issue" is a transitional
one.  Once packages are downloaded with pacman-6.0+, they will have the
signature file and this issue disappears.  A "pacman -Scc" would "fix"
the issue.

Perhaps repos that do not have signatures and are configured with
"SigLevel = Optional" still have an issue.

In any case, I am pushing this beyond pacman-6.0.1.
