PGP error for Kickshaw and ROfi

Is anyone else getting invalid or corrupt package (PGP signature) for both kickshaw and rofi? My system wants to update but these two won’t. I have thrown pacli at it. I even manually refreshed the PGP keys. The offending keys are not showing so I can’t use gpg --recv-keys command. I did a pacman log, nothing. I will keep digging, but if someone else has ran into this issue and has an answer, please post it. It would be much appreciated. :angry:

it would be useful, post the answer of:

pacman -Syu

Hi @ector yeah I have tried that, and it’s a no go. This is a real head scratcher. I have even tried to force install with no results. But keep coming up with ideas, maybe you’ll come up with something I haven’t tried yet that may work. I even did pacman -Syyu.

What errors are you getting?

I do not know if the translator translates wrong, but I asked you to paste the answer, to see the errors of the keys.:pensive:
To date, I do not own the crystal ball :smiley:

Sorry, guys been away from my computer, been under the weather. Yeah, the translator isn’t working to well for you @ector. Darn and here I thought you were a mind reader! Didn’t you read my smoke signals!? :joy: as soon as I can I will paste the output for you guys to see. Every thing else updated but these.

Sorry @ector I reread your post. I’ll get you that result. I shouldn’t try to read posts when I have a migraine. And I have a massive one now.

And When I say ‘no’ to delete the packages, i’m thrown out completely

see if this post helps.


Thanks @ector I couldn’t find that post. Thank you for finding it for me. For some reason those two keys are not being accepted unless you manualy tell your system to do so.:thinking:


Thanks @ector, was about to link @sevenday4 to that thread.


Yeah, @ector did find that thread, but for some reason I couldn’t. I am beginning to wonder if my devices are revolting against me! May have too specific on what I was looking for. I found later just using PGP errors, and bam there it was. Thanks guys.
