Error when upgrading/updating
« on: 19. March 2016, 20:16:43 »
Several times after updating a brand new installation of Manjaro 15.12 KDE, the installation fails at the end.

The upgrade/update through Octopi is about 1.2gb or a little more, so it takes an hour or so on our connectio n at home.

Each time I have tried this the upgrade fails in terminal after waiting all that time, with the following error....

--------------------
downloading required keys...
error: key "8DB9F8C18DF53602" could not be looked up remotely
error: required key missing from keyring
error: failed to commit transaction (unexpected error)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
----------------

I never used to get this with Manjaro KDE, it always updated flawlessly. Until a week or so ago, I installed a clean 15.12 and it gave me the above error. I have tried twice more with a clean install of Manjaro but the same. I cannot get it to update the software and packages. Very frustrating to wait and hour or to two find all the downloaded packages have failed and I have to try again.

Like I said, this never used to happen. Then I switched to a few different distros as I enjoy trying them out. Then decided to come back to Manjaro as always and now this problem.

Not sure what to do as I never used to have this on previous installs.

Thanks.

But it seems to have been the solution for the same problem https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=32212.msg263737#msg263737
PS: I just followed the advice of an "authority" here, don't know if it was the right advice.
