Did you download the signature: MailScanner-5.3.1-3.noarch.deb.sig and 
verify that the .deb file you downloaded is legit and complete?

The first time I did it, I right clicked and copied the links from this 
page Then used 
'wget' to download on my CentOS 7 server. When I verify the signature, 
gpg complained the .sig file was not a signature file. I then found out 
'wget' retrieved html pages not the real files. I had to click the links 
on, then copy the 
signature and the link of "Download" button.
