    That's actually a successful verification, as indicated by the "Good
    signature from" line. The problem is in the web-of-trust... Damien's
    key isn't signed by any trusted keys present in your keyring. What I
    normally do in this situation, assuming I'm confident of the key's
    legitimacy, is to add a non-exportable signature.

       gpg --lsign-key 86FF9C48
