I booted up my computer to find that I had an update available, and when I went to upgrade it, I was met with this.
I tried deleting
/etc/pacman.d/gnupg, and running these commands:
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
sudo pacman -Sc
sudo pacman -Syu
but I still encountered the same error. (quick note: the refresh-keys command finished with this error:
==> ERROR: A specified local key could not be updated from a keyserver. )
I repeated the above commands, except I added
keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net to
~/.gnupg/gpg.conf after running the init command. It still resulted in the same error, but I notied that the refresh-keys command was able to get a bunch of keys.
Please help me out.
Oh and in case it matters, I’m using KDE.
Try a different keyserver (e.g.
keyserver.ubuntu.com) - this one was/is having problems.
sudo pacman -U endeavouros-keyring-1-4-any.pkg.tar.xz
Those are separate commands
This fixed it. Thankyou
…but why? Can the valid EOS keys only be acquired from that file? Will I have to do this over and over again as time passes?
This didn’t fix this issue, but it fixed another one I was having: installing spotify-adblock-linux from the AUR. TY
Edit: actually no wait. I jumped the gun too soon. I’m now getting a “Failure while downloading” error
Edit #2: the fix was to use spotify-dev instead of spotify
this is also not the Eos key, as far as i can see here… this is caused by keyserver error.
Different error, different problem, different solution.
I had the same issue with the keyserver not working when trying to install Spotify from the AUR.
I added the ubuntu keyserver mentioned earlier to the conf files at “/etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf” and “~/.gnupg/gpg.conf” as mentioned in the arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Package_signing#Cannot_import_keys
I did a keyserver init, populate and refresh and it installed ok after that.
