[INFO] Sardi and Surfn icons invalid or corrupted package pgp signature

Post by erikdubois » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:43 pm

Sometimes we rebuild the same package again with a slight change in it. The signature will then not match the package.

This will only happen if you have installed this last version. Deleted it and want to install it again.
The package will then come from your cache folder and it will give the notice

Code: Select all

File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/surfn-icons-git-9.6-17-any.pkg.tar.xz is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)).
Do you want to delete it? [Y/n] 
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)
When that happens you get this message.



This can happen too with other packages of-course.

SOLUTION
Delete the package in your cache with

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Scc
Then

Code: Select all

update
and try to install again

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S sardi-icons surfn-icons-git
