• IPC connect call failed

    I just booted up my Antergos system and ran a update (haven’t updated for a long while because I have not had access to this PC) and ran into an issue…

    The keys were not updated, so I downloaded the new keys but they wouldn’t get accepted. So I ran “pacman-key --init”, but then I got this error:

    gpg: starting migration from earlier GnuPG versions
    gpg: can't connect to the agent: IPC connect call failed
    gpg: error: GnuPG agent unusable. Please check that a GnuPG agent can be started.

    Easy enough, maybe the gpg-agent was not started.
    So I ran “gpg-agent -v --daemon” and got this error:

    gpg-agent: relocation error: gpg-agent: symbol gcry_get_config, version GCRYPT_1.6 not defined in file libgcrypt.so.20 with link time reference

    And I have no idea what this means and I can’t find anything that works on the forums…
    I can’t download anything because I do not have the keys, even by adding the manually I get an PGP Signature error…

    Any ideas?

  • Solved!

    libgcrypt was corrupted for some reason. By forcing signature checking to never in “/etc/pacman.conf”

    SigLevel = Never

    and then force reinstalling “libgcrypt” by (not sure if “–force” is needed)

    sudo pacman -S libgcrypt --force

    and then

    sudo pacman --init
    sudo pacman --populate archlinux antergos
    sudo pacman --refresh-keys
    sudo pacman -Syyu

    Works perfect now.
