The issue here is that no signatures have been verified.

In order to verify signatures and be able to easily add support for
other host distributions such as Trisquel (which doesn't have pacman
but does have chroot), I think it's better to do that with chroot /
arch-chroot and pacman -S uboot4extlinux-a10-olinuxino-lime
