failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package)...
I am trying to install base Xorg packages using this command:
# pacman -S xorg-server xorg-xinit xorg-server-utils
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package) Errors occured, no packages were upgraded.

it shows the errors quoted above.
Also, I would have pasted the whole terminal output - but it's on VM, and I can't get the terminal output inside that VM to ubuntu(so that I can paste it here), pacman giving problems seems to make this even harder.
I am not sure what I have messed up as I am installing it for first time, so I am waiting for some help. Thanks!

I take it you tried a pacman -Syu and still have the same problem ...
can you post the contents of /etc/pacman.conf ... btw why don't you setup a shared folder and cp info to it from the vm? redirect output from the terminal 1>normal_output etc

Oh, yes I did that too.
I asked this question sometime ago, and after waiting for some time, I asked it on Arch Linux forums too.
You can see that thread here:
https bbs archlinux org viewtopic php id=142022
If you don't mind, you can look at the screenshots I have posted in that thread to see settings in /etc/pacman.conf file. They are still the same.
I would have pasted the /etc/pacman.conf here - but the same error comes up even when I try to install virtualbox guest additions in Arch, so I can't access a shared folder without it, and no terminal output.
TBH, at this point of time, I am thinking this error might be due to some error that might have occured during netinstall, although I am not sure about such a possilbility.

Have you checked information in /var/log/pacman.log
Although package signing is fairly new to pacman - I think checksums should have picked up a bad download.
You could try disabling package signing on a temporary basis to see if that is causing the issue - putting
SigLevel = Never
If its signature problems then you could wipe the key info and start again ... resetting all the keys info at the bottom of pacman-key wiki page here
