Hi everyone, how do you retrieve keyids? I looked at the key's part of the arch wiki but I can't figure it out. It says to use pacman-key -r <keyid> .But that's a bit of a problem since I don't know what the keyid is and how to find out what it is.

For what? You only need to add a key if you are trying to add a signed repository. For instance, take a look at graysky's repo-ck wiki page here.
So unless you know what it is you want to add and what for, this feature is of no use to you.
I want to install Clamav.But I get the following errors.So I want to add Gaetan Bisson's KeyID to the keyring so I can install Clamav.
error: clamav: signature from "Gaetan Bisson <firstname.lastname@example.org>" is unknown trust
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature))
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
I think maybe yuo need to use pacman-key to refresh the keys.
Edit: Do this
# pacman-key --refresh-keys
The only reason why I can think of why you wouldn't have a good key is that your installation is not up to date. Have you updated recently?
Edit2: BTW, when I refresh my keys, I get this:
gpg: key 00F0D0F0: "Gaetan Bisson <email@example.com>" not changed
So if I have no change, I am not sure why you would if your installation is up to date.

Yes, I updated my system recently. I just ran pacman-key --refresh-keys and it's still giving me the same errors.
Yes, I read those before posting.My Keyring is up to date. I assume that it's just not in the keyring.How do I find out what the keyid is and add it to the keyring?
read the GnuPG man page (man gpg)
You sure it's corrupted and doesn't have anything to do with the unknown trust error?
I repopulated my keys and now everything is working fine.Can someone please mark this as solved?

you have to mark it solved.... by editing your first post in the thread and appending [SOLVED] in the thread title.
There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
This would likely not have been a issue had this not been an Archbang installation.
