• Error while installing today's update


    While installing today’s packages update I’m getting an error:
    key "4A1AFC345EBE18F8" could not be looked up remotely
    Has anyone else got in trouble like this? Any solution? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Piotr,
    Since nearly 10 days, I can’t update Antergos too.
    At the beginning, it was a problem with deepin but now I have the same message than you.
    Not enough time and not enough skills
    to solve this kind of problem.
    All I can say is YOU ARE NOT ALONE !!! :-)

  • Hmmm… it sounds like a problem with your keys. What happens if you try these commands? (after installing haveged and reflector from Pamac ;))

    • sudo haveged -w 1024
    • sudo pacman-key --init
    • sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos
    • sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
    • sudo pkill haveged
    • sudo pacman -Syy
    • sudo reflector --verbose --age 8 --fastest 128 --latest 64 --number 32 --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    • sudo pacman -Syyu

    Hopefully this helps, and good luck:grinning:.

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • @Keegan Thank you very much! It seems it helped, even though $ sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys returned an error (failed refreshing keys from server):

    $ sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys gpg: refreshing 97 keys from hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net gpg: odświeżenie kluczy z serwera nie powiodło się: Verification failed in DNS

    Thanks again.

    Exactly, and I’ve already marker the thread “solved”.

    A helpful community is at least as much important, as a well done distro. I really value your help.

    Thanks! That’s good to hear:grinning:. I wish you the best of luck with Antergos in the future!

    Thank you for such a high compliment! My hope is that I can help as many as I can here in the time I have. If you ever have a problem in the future, just let me know! (or ask @joekamprad, he’s a lot better at this sort of thing than I am ;)).

    Be sure I will. :) After a week of use it seems Antergos is the only distribution my hardware goes well with, so I’ll stick to it.

    Good to know, thanks!

    I did not go into the subject any longer, since my problem had been resolved. Will use the LANG param in future questions.

  • For info, I fixed the problem with updating the Linux Keyring package first…
    Enjoy !
