Balking ARM ArchLinux Update

Had an issue with update of ARM ArchLinux which I use here. Error messages like:

(95/95) checking keys in keyring                                                          [####################################################] 100%

Found forum post: many corrupted packages/invalid PGP signatures for aarch64? Suggestion there:

pacman-key --init
pacman-key --populate archlinuxarm

This helped, so could proceed with pacman -Syu.

Also try

pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring

if above is not sufficient.

  1. Thanks. This fixed my Arch Linux Arm installation on a Rpi which was seeing the error “signature from “Arch Linux ARM Build System ” is unknown trust”
