Hello @drcrypto

You will need to specify the level of trust you have in the key. You can configure this within gpg:

gpg --edit-key

The above will place you in the gpg prompt, displaying key information for Next you can specify your trust level:

gpg> trust

Which should provide you with your options:

Please decide how far you trust this user to correctly verify other users' keys

  3 = I trust marginally
  4 = I trust fully
