Pacman-key refresh issue

I am getting the following error when I try pacman-key refresh

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
[sudo] password for <user>: 
gpg: refreshing 122 keys from hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
gpg: keyserver refresh failed: General error

not sure how to fix it, any help is appreciated

Try if using another keyserver could help for example keyserver.ubuntu.com .

You can change the keyserver adding: keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com
in /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf .

Thanks that seems to have worked
is there a list of keyservers someplace?
