    Hi!
    i never noticed the error but you could try to refesh the keys:

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

  • Its a VM @work so I will try it first thing monday. Thanks!
    (I have never seen this my self).

    Out of curiosity, whats the difference between “;” and “&&” ?

    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

    I use connected commands alot, never seen “;”

  • @izznogooood “;” is similar to “|” just to separate commands i use ; to separate commands in my alias ( i simply copied and pasted my alias for you :)
    "&&" is used to execute the second command only if the first is executed properly, that means if the first fails the second won’t be executed.

  • Hi
    I had the same problem.
    I solved it with updating the keyring:

    sudo pacman -Scc <-- reply with explicit y to the first question
    sudo pacman -Syy
    sudo pacman -S haveged
    sudo haveged -w 1024
    sudo pacman-key --init
    sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos
    sudo pkill haveged
    sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring antergos-keyring
    sudo pacman -Syu

    This did not work I am afraid ;).
