running my daily pacman updates I ran into this issue.

THE PROBLEM:

"... error: hyprland-git: signature from "Erik Dubois <erik.dubois@gmail.com>" is invalid
:: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/hyprland-git-0.41.2.r7.b7f42a1e-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst 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)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
..."

MY STEPS:
  • sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring
  • sudo pacman-key --populate
  • sudo pacman -Syu

THE OUTCOME:
Same error. When I check the location of the cache the file is gone. so how can I solve this? In the past, if I remember correctly, the version of several hyprland packages had been replaced (with the information if I want to replace and I said yes), becaue "changes are the only constant in life"
Today I planed on doing nothing and I am ahead in time :mrgreen:

I am also having the same issue. I ran fixkey and that did not solve the issue. I also modified the /etc/pacman.conf to set the default and arco linux SigLevel to be TrustAll, repopulated the key and still got the same issue.

sudo pacman -Scc

and then fixkey and update

I have been working on the hyprland packages
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google

Hello Eric,

thank you very much for the response and the information. I will have to make a seperate subsection of pacman in my documentation.
I just ran the usual sudo pacman -Syu today and it went through without a hitch.

Most appreciated.
