This PKGBUILD verifies the authenticity of the source via PGP signatures which are not part of the Arch Linux keyring. In order to complete the process it is necessary to import the key(s) from the ‘validpgpkeys’ array into the user’s keyring before calling makepkg. There is a helpful article explaining this process by one of Arch Linux's developer's located here:

Instructions on importing keys from a keyserver and how to automate the retrieval process can be found in the Arch Linux wiki here:
This article also contains helpful information describing the installation of GnuPG, its configuration and usage.

Execute the following to import keys using gpg:
gpg --recv-keys <KEYID - See 'validpgpkeys' array in PKGBUILD>

Stop reading silly forum and take a look at the only pinned comment. Is reading something that is actually relevant really that hard?

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys F7E48EDB

Execute this command if pgp key verification fails, I got this from Manjaro Forum

Can you please fix this.

Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
ncurses-6.0-20161224.tgz ... FAILED (unknown public key 702353E0F7E48EDB)

I can't. Donate me some aarch64 board or embrace the --ignorearch flag.

mgw commented on 2017-01-30 21:36

Could you add aarch64 to supported architectures? I can confirm that it works.

Executing "gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 702353E0F7E48EDB" before trying to build the package resolved the issue for me once became reachable on the internet again.

yaourt --m-arg "--skippgpcheck" -S ncurses5-compat-libs

for SOME reason its not documented (I think the reasons are obvious)

taifunbrowser commented on 2016-12-19 17:28 is currently unpingable, so the required public key cannot be imported. This package is apparently a prerequesite for building chromium-dev.

To be exact, you need to add the server too.
So, with the key inside the PKGBUILD, it will be:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB
