The first month I had ArcoLinux B Mate on my system(s- T540p and T560 ThinkPads), there were updates every day. Now I haven't had any for a couple weeks. Do I need to reset something? Not looking in the right repo?

Thank you. That appears to be working. I'll let you know after reboot -- updates after long periods of not updating breaking Arch is a long-told story.

first

sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring

then the update

that is always the case if you do not update for several months

Learn how to update - it is all about knowledge - Arch Linux does not break IF you know what to do at every instance

Learn, have fun and enjoy.
