• Problem updating an abandoned Antergos!


    Hi!
    I have an Antergos installed in a virtual machine, it was abandoned for a month or two and now i can’t update.
    I already tried to refresh keys and sudo pacman-key --init returns a library problem as follows:

    $ sudo pacman-key --init gpg: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory chmod: cannot access '/etc/pacman.d/gnupg/trustdb.gpg': No such file or directory gpg: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory gpg: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ==> Updating trust database... gpg: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: Trust database could not be updated.

    So now i’m very interested in learning how to update Antergos in case i face something similar on a real pc…
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Always update… xD

    Well, you need readline7 and it seems it’s missing or something.

    Does this work for you?
    sudo pacman -Syy bash gnupg readline

    sudo pacman -Syy bash gnupg readline

    It’s a virtual machine, so it’s not a big problem, but as i said i’m interested in learning how to solve.
    The command didn’t work, PGP warnings about signature. Also prompt if i used the command pacman-key --init (which give me that error above)

    PS: How can i discover the pgp signatures to import them manually for the 3 packages you suggest, or how can i install them through terminal ignoring pgp check?

  • Hi,

    I would advice to download antergos-keyring and archlinux-keyring packages and install them with -U option using pacman.

    Then, you can try sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos

    Cheers!

    Ok, at first i tried to download the libraries from ALA and move them manually, but there were problems later updating…

    Then i downloaded readline, bash and antergos-keyring and archlinux-keyring as you suggested.
    Then everything worked…

    @karasu it’s pretty scary leave Antergos without updates for some time hehehehe.
    Everything is fine now and i learned a lot.
    Thank you very much 👍
