I used the auto-trust-anchor-file directive in unbound.conf:

 auto-trust-anchor-file: "/etc/unbound/anchors/root/root-anchors.txt"

Once you restart unbound, that file should have the automatically
retrieved root anchor, via rfc5011 magic. If you are running unbound as
a different user, make sure the file is owned by that user as unbound
will need to write to it periodically.
