I know this has been posted before, but hear me out first.
I seems that Pacman is plagued with the same problem PPA's were plagued in Ubuntu before. The problem is, some ISP's have blocked the port used to import PGP keys. Back in the day, we used a script. Then things got fixed on Ubuntu.
I have access to another computer with a different ISP and Pacman is importing keys normally.
Here's what I did to fix the problem:
-replace keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net
with keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu:11371
Things are working fine now!

Wouldn't the proper solution be to bitch at your ISP?
Yeah, right. Like they care.
What protected Pacman page?

This solved my problem! ty!
I´ll point the others threads here and hope someone else get their problem solved by this.
