The amavisd-new package in version 2.11.0-4 is signed by an unknown key (4096R/051EAD6A6155389D69DA02E5EB763B4E9DB887A6)
by Thore Bödecker ( This causes pacman to print a request to import the key. As far as I know,
the key is supposed to be in archlinux-keyring, but it isn't. Please add the key or do something else appropriate
to get rid of the request, because it's not inherently safe to just confirm the request.

Looks like this:

:: Import PGP key 4096R/051EAD6A6155389D69DA02E5EB763B4E9DB887A6, "Thore Bödecker <>", created: 2017-05-22? [Y/n]

Steps to reproduce:

Try to install or upgrade the amavisd-new package from community.

Pacman will only trust keys that are signed by at least 3 master keys for the official repositories. There's nothing wrong with downloading the key from a keyserver unless you change pacman.conf to trust any key.
