We now retrieve signature files for all packages during download. Given these files are tiny, this is done without setting up a download progress bar of its own.

However, when a package is already in the pacman cache, but the signature is not, we get output that looks like:

vlc- is up to date
whois-5.5.6-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is up to date
xorg-server-common-1.20.9-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is up to date
xorg-server-1.20.9-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is up to date
youtube-dl-2020.07.28-1-any.pkg.tar.zst is up to date

This is not ideal... We need to show a download is being performed in this case.
This task depends upon

Also, when a package just downloads the signature file, that line does not get moved up into the "completed" area. See attached screenshot.
