a suitable solution which has worked for a handful of people is in
Removing phonon-qt4 and kdebase-runtime (and dependent packages) using the command line worked for me.
But please try this iteratively, so that you establish the set of packages that need to be removed for your particular installation of Antergos.
If the list of packages includes stuff you require then do not proceed with the removal!
@jplbeewee the fact that update is complaining about the signature implies that phonon-qt4 hasn’t been uninstalled.
What do you get for
pacman -Si phonon-qt4?
error: package 'phonon-qt4' was not found
The gui fails to remove the package, (I think this is because of dependencies) so I removed using the command line with
sudo pacman -Rs phonon-qt4
which fails, and then kept adding the packages it complains about to that list.
In my experience that should just be a few more unused packages.
If the list starts getting large don’t do it just post the list here and we’ll try to figure out what is happening.
In my case the command line that worked was
sudo pacman -Rs phonon-qt4 kdebase-runtime kdelibs breeze-kde4 kdesudo
but your list may be different.
Apologies for this naive question… I’m still feeling my way around Antergos.
Using https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta as a reference I looked at output of
pacman -Qdtq(did not do the
| pacman -Rspart)
There’s a bunch of packages that I didn’t expect for example
I fixed those as using
pacman -D --asexplicit
Then I tested the waters with
$ sudo pacman -Rs mariadb checking dependencies... :: apr-util optionally requires libmariadbclient: enable mysql/mariadb support :: qt3 optionally requires libmariadbclient: MariaDB driver :: qt4 optionally requires libmariadbclient: MariaDB driver :: qt5-base optionally requires libmariadbclient: MariaDB driver Packages (3) libmariadbclient-10.1.35-1 mariadb-clients-10.1.35-1 mariadb-10.1.35-1 Total Removed Size: 228.58 MiB :: Do you want to remove these packages? [Y/n] n
That response did not fill me with confidence.
So this question is directed to forum members who are more knowledgeable,
in your experience is it safe to do
pacman -Qdtq | pacman -Rs -?

I elected to uninstall
phonon-qt5is already installed IMHO there is no reason to have both, but you will need to make that judgement yourself.
Sound seems to work okay, I use Clementine to listen to music.
For the record I also removed
kdebase-runtime kdelibs breeze-kde4 kdesudo
On my box phonon-qt5 was also installed, so I elected to remove
kdebase-runtime, I had to also uninstall a small number of dependent packages, in my case this was
phonon-qt4 kdebase-runtime kdelibs breeze-kde4 kdesudo
System seems to work fine so far, but your mileage may vary…
I saw the same problem too, but give my previous experience with Antergos I elected to wait for a few days, and today the update just worked!
I would like to express my appreciation to the developers @karasu, @lots-0-logs, @Wyn10 and all the participants in this forum who make using Antergos a joy!
And of course thanks should go to the Arch developers as well ( I choose to say that here rather than the Arch forums, as I’m not sure how the fact that I use Antergos would be accepted there.)
To my uneducated eye it looks like your machine was unable to access the Antergos mirror.
It’s probably worthwhile trying again.
For the record I could access ind.mirror.pkgbuild.com in my browser and found core.db in http://ind.mirror.pkgbuild.com/core/os/x86_64/
I am in the UK and ind.mirror.pkgbuild.com is not in my version of
