Good day everybody!
When updating the system, pacman updates “core” and “extra” but does not update endeavouros: it says “endeavouros-keyring not found”. Here’s the result:
[paolo@endeavourOS ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu
[sudo] password di paolo:
:: Sincronizzazione dei database in corso…
core è aggiornato
extra è aggiornato
:: Aggiornamento del sistema in corso…
attenzione: dracut: la versione installata (059-1) è più recente di quella presente in extra (056-2)
attenzione: yad: la versione installata (13.0-1.1) è più recente di quella presente in extra (13.0-1)
Nessun aggiornamento disponibile

welcome onto the purple side :enos: @Paolo
Both packages dracut, yad are currently on the EndeavourOS repo (overlays)
It seems you may have merged archlinux updated pacman.conf ? show it:
cat /etc/pacman.conf | eos-sendlog (will pastbin it and give you a short url you can post here)

That would allow me to see if that is the case.

but… endeavouros-keyring not found … looks like uninstalled the package?
pacman -Qs endeavouros-keyring
would show…

you can try:
sudo pacman -S endeavouros-keyring endeavouros-mirrorlist
to solve it but as long we do not know what the issue is…

Hallo Joe and thanks for your reply.
I’ve never posted a txt log, anyway I’ll try my best 'cos the problem still persists (on “sudo pacman -S endeavouros-keyring endeavouros-mirrorlist” it says:

[paolo@endeavourOS ~]$ sudo pacman -S endeavouros-keyring endeavouros-mirrorlist
[sudo] password di paolo: 
errore: il seguente pacchetto non è stato trovato: endeavouros-keyring

And here’s cat /etc/pacman.conf
[paolo@endeavourOS ~]$ cat /etc/pacman.conf

I thank you Joe and I’m sorry but I’m pretty new to this kind of posting.

you reset pacman.conf to archlinux default …

run this to reset to EndeavourOS file:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/endeavouros-team/EndeavourOS-ISO/main/airootfs/etc/pacman.conf && sudo cp pacman.conf /etc/

and try again… sudo pacman -Syyu

and show output of pacman -Qs endeavouros-

and as a hint… you can change commandoutput to english:

LANG=C command
command to be replaced with the command you want to share the output from …

and to post logs use a pastebin and short logs use the code tags:

we have a pastebin helper for you:
pacman -Qs endeavouros- | eos-sendlog
will pull out a short url you can post here…

This is the output of “pacman -Qs endeavouros”

I presume everything's ok now or do I still need to manually install something else?.
Thanks alot for your unrivalled help
I forgot to ask you: would you recommend using "pacman -Syu" to update system or rather use "yay"?

If you don’t have AUR packages installed, you can update with

sudo pacman -Syu

If you have AUR packages installed, you can use


to update your system.


Thanks alot Manuel. All my doubts have been completely fulfilled.
