How do prevent this message from occurring?

C:\Mercator6.7\gnupg>gpg -r "" -o "rph4.txt" -e "README"

can assign some missing owner trust values.

No path leading to one of our keys found.

It is NOT certain that the key belongs to its owner.
If you *really* know what you are doing, you may answer

This is not related in any way to GPA, but to gpg.

And even then, it's a feature of gpg to complain about
untrusted keys, not a bug, and certainly not a "critical",
"high priority" bug.
