That means that the key that produced the signature is not known to be
valid. In otherwords, it isn't signed be a trusted key.
You should verify the identity of the owner of the key, and then confirm
that the key in question actually is the one he is using (the key
fingerprint is unique for all practical purposes of identification -- have
him read the fingerprint to you, and then if it matches the copy you have,
sign his key.)
