AUR update incomplete - PGP signature incorrect


Got a big update today. All went through except those 2 packages which will not install complaining about PGP signatures unverified.

Problem while updating from AUR
sudo pacman-key --refresh-key

Should do the job



Ok the key refresh didn’t work but I remove phonon-qt4 as suggested by Signalrunner. It took away the other package with it. Hopefully it will have no effect. Strange though that it still push updates for it.
The updater is happy now.

Thanks !


The combined two above will get you where you need to go (either add the signature or remove the package).
To check if anything needs it look at the ‘required by’ line from
pacman -Qi phonon-qt4

Edit- oops seconds too late :wink:


Oops seconds too late too. I cannot check what use phonon-qt4 since I remove it and it won’t re-install just to use your command and see what use it.



Well… It’s not that it pushes updates for it. Since it isn’t in Manjaro repos anymore, it can’t be updated…

But, if you use an AUR helper, or the graphical package managers with AUR support, in order to look for updates and the package formerly at Manjaro repos it is relegated now to the AUR… Well, updates will be found.

A good old “pacman -Syu” wouldn’t had found updates, I believe. This in one of those things, where the AUR is involved, which isn’t officially supported and… well. You know, it is what it is.


And PGP is doing what it should.
You should look up the key and verify you trust the owner, etc. Only then do you import the key. From then on you trust that key as a source for software.


I know, I know. I’m just pointing to the “fault” of using helpers indiscriminately in order to proceed with updates, instead of doing it by “stages”.

I mean, a “pacman -Syu” first and then and just then, a “yaourt -Syua” or “yay whatever”. Instead of just calling the helper beforehand and just doing the updates with a yay or whatever. I’m sorry, I know I explain myself badly and my english sucks.


You’re fine, I was just adding :wink:


I have a question. Since it let me uninstall the package without any warnings, does that mean that nothing needs it ?

Consulting the history, removing phonon-qt4, remove those 4 packages. (My other Manjaro Xfce machine doesn’t have those installed so must be something I have install on this one)

2018-08-26 12:05] [ALPM] removed phonon-qt4-gstreamer (4.9.0-4)
[2018-08-26 12:05] [ALPM] removed phonon-qt4 (4.10.1-1)
[2018-08-26 12:05] [ALPM] removed kdelibs (4.14.38-4)
[2018-08-26 12:05] [ALPM] removed kdebase-runtime (17.08.3-3)
[2018-08-26 12:05] [ALPM] transaction started



You can check a package’s dependents via pacman -Qi packagename. If it has no dependents then it can be freely removed.


Manjaro-XFCE (turn Compiz on and off).

Know I got the kdebase-runtime and phonon-qt4 because there are some old games I really like.

Was going to remove those 2 files just to see what game(s) broke. (Probably all of them?)
but can’t from AUR. Terminal would be? Sudo pacman -R package??

I would prefer to keep as I love the games so like the import key idea but am not sure how to find and import properly.


Yup, you got it. Small “s”.


Thanks LOL yea meant small s.


A proper sentence begins with capitalization, neh? :smiley:
