Error: GPGME error: No data - new

Well i would not have known what the problem actually was other than it’s not able to download the proper files which always leads me to think it’s a mirror problem. Changing the pacman.conf will do that. :thinking:

Originally the EndeavourOS repo was correctly set up and active.

Do you have the EndeavourOS repo active now?

My guess would be they commented it out on their own (on purpose), but missed the first line or did not realize it was part of it.

I assume that too. Just asked if the EndeavourOS repo is working on not, as others seem to work.

Accidentally happened while following the suggestions from this forum. As mentioned in the beginning.

“No” meaning it is currently still NOT working?

Or “No” meaning it wasn’t working, but it is now?

If it’s still not working, run the command below, copy the text and paste it in the thread.

xed /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist

Maybe they don’t have xed. :wink:

Well, they do

I asked them to use a GUI app because they were posting the text on the thread inefficiently.

They were having an issue before attempting doing this, so don’t blame me.


Sorry for the late reply.

It is working now.

started working only after commenting [endeavouros] in pacman.conf.

xed /etc/pacman.conf

Still confused. More confused?

For the lines above in /etc/pacman.conf, it should look like below. No hashtags. If it is exactly, like below, then you may need to refresh the keys.

Now I removed hashtags except for SigLevel = PackageRequired.

SigLevel = PackageRequired

line only gives error: GPME error: No data.

It should either be like this

SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist

or like this

#SigLevel = PackageRequired
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist

Otherwise, you may have errors.

So, either add hashtags to all the lines related to the EndeavourOS repo, if you don’t want to use it. Or remove all the hashtags to avoid errors.


Maybe you have corrupted EndeavourOS packages or signatures in /var/cache/pacman/pkg. Try removing them and update again.
