Still can't figure out why I am getting this error. Please I need help

If I am missing any information required to solve this issue please
pardon me, and let me know. Thanks...

You have a key in your keyring that purportedly belongs to your friend,
but there is no assurance that this is indeed the case (anyone can
generate a PGP key stating any email address it wants).

Option 1:
Ensure that the is verifiable through the Web of Trust starting from
from your own PGP key.

Option 2:
Configure evolution not to check that and instead assume that if you
have a OpenPGP key in your keyring for a given email, it should encrypt
the messages for that recipient using that key:
Edit → Preferences → (Choose your account) → Edit → Security → Check
Always trust keys in my keyring when encrypting
