I have added your repositories to Garuda and then installed your Arch Linux Tweak Tool and proceeded to add the XeroLinux, EndeavorOS, Chaotic, and Nemesis repositories to Garuda using your Tweak Tool. Whenever I check to see what updates are out there using Pamac after refreshing it's database I get the below error. Do you by chance have the wrong server address for Xero, or is somethging else causing the error?

Code: Select all

Preparing...
Synchronizing package databases...
Refreshing arcolinux_repo.db...
Refreshing arcolinux_repo_3party.db...
Refreshing arcolinux_repo_xlarge.db...

We have a fixkey command that we type in the terminal.

ATT has a fixkeyz command.

But your package of our keyring has to be the latest.

first use the search on this forum then ask

I bump this (sorry if I shouldn't). I have regularly the error

Code: Select all

arcolinux_repo : la signature de « Erik Dubois <erik.dubois@gmail.com> » n’est pas valide
when I do a

Code: Select all

sudo pamac update --force-refresh
If I run

Code: Select all

fixkeyz
it indeed solves the problem but only for a few days. It always comes back (I can't make any correlation with anything particular).
No error though with paru, yay, pacman or octopi. This is a pamac specific issue.

I did do some work this morning.

It might have messed things up.

Make sure you do not have the pacman-init service running


sudo systemctl status pacman-init.service

this one CAN NOT exist on your system

Code: Select all

systemctl status pacman-init.service
Unit pacman-init.service could not be found.
Note that sometimes the problem solves "by itself" without running fixkeyz. Weird.

good to see that is not there.

so it might have been a fluke

Hello,

it seems that removing (or renaming) the file /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf
solves the problem for good... No more error forcing pamac database refresh since then.

Edit : Sorry, it just happened again. Therefore maybe not really solved...
Edit2 : just upgrading with "paru -Syyu" and then refreshing pamac database --> error gone...
Remark : right now, I have booted on Endeavour OS, with arcolinux repos enabled and arcolinux-pamac-all installed.
