Antergos-keyring is unknown trust [solved]

When I wanted to update my Arch / Antergos mac book before travelling this morning I was greeted by the following unfriendly message:

error: antergos-keyring: signature from "Antergos Build Server (Automated Package Build System) <admin@antergos.org>" is unknown trust

What the… Did somebody infiltrate the Arch/Antergos servers?! I was a bit worried, but of course one of the numerous forums had an answer already.

Running

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
sudo pacman -Sy antergos-keyring

did the trick and I could update my system again with pacman -Syu

  1. Hi. This didn’t seem to work for me.

    I had to do the following, which I found fairly far down in the following forum:

    sudo pacman -S haveged
    sudo haveged -w 1024
    sudo pacman-key –init
    sudo pacman-key –populate archlinux antergos
    sudo pkill haveged

    then updating the keyring package worked:
    sudo pacman -Sy antergos-keyring
    sudo pacman -Syyu

  2. Huge thanks. I had similar errors after not upgrading Arch in awhile (Antergos installer version). This fixed it! I did not know about pacman-key. I guess I never took the time to look at `ls /bin/pac*`
