• PGP signature error


    Hello.
    I get this error when I try to update my system and I’m having trouble fixing it. I’ve tried a couple posts I found on here, but couldn’t get it to work and they were a few years old, so thought I’d open a new thread.

  • try download: https://repo.antergos.info/antergos/x86_64/antergos-keyring-20170524-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
    and manual install with sudo pacman -U antergos-keyring-20170524-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

    [updates once a week] = [90% less problems]
    my#repo
    how to add system logs:
    wget http://bit.ly/2GCG9k2 && sh 2GCG9k2

  • Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it didnt help, here’s the output:

    error: GPGME error: No data

    it is a strange error b.t.w. do you do anything with your pacman.conf before?

    try to populate the keys:

    pacman-key --init
    pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos
    pacman -Syy

    If this do not help it might be an mirror issue also, try commenting the sourceforgemirror inside antergos-mirrorlist like this:

    ........
    #
    Server = http://mirrors.antergos.com/$repo/$arch
    #Server = http://sourceforge.net/projects/antergos/files/mirror/$repo/$arch
    ..........

    :handshake: donate antergos

  • @heap said in PGP signature error:

    If all this does not help do it the hard way (should be save i try inside VM)

    rm -R /var/lib/pacman/sync
    pacman -Syu

  • @joekamprad Hello, sorry I haven’t answered you further. I gave up there for a while. Though it seems like removing the sourceforge mirror did it for me, I still think my mirrorlist is not optimal as I’m getting various errors. Especially from bjtu.edu.cn mirror. I guess after not using the system for like half a year there’s bound to be a few errors with the mirrorlist. I think removing mirrors as I get errors will solve it for me from here.
    Thanks for your help, Joe
