I apologize for a previous post that had to do with this or a similar problem, but I was unable to respond because life got in the way. Fortunately it was resolved for someone else who chimed in with the same issue.
I haven’t been able to install any packages that required importing keys. Nothing imperative so I did without extra packages. Now I’m having more issues.
First, I can’t update nvidia drivers with new kernel. This lead to working on updating the keyring, because that’s been a mess. I first noticed pacman was having issues when running ‘bmenu’, “Fix Pacman” was highlighted RED and I ran it a few times. The problem persisted, or it stayed red anyway. Now I have looked for solutions and came to here: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Pacman_troubleshooting
successfully updated manjaro-keyring, but archlinux-keyring-*-any.pkg.tar.xz does not exist, at least not at that address.
I went back to trying to resolve the problem of installing my nvidia drivers. I found a solution here: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/unable-to-satisfy-dependency-nvidia-driver-install/22864
I get all the way to removing cuda to prepare for installing my nvidia-x-x-prime (i am on a hybrid/alienware laptop) and then follow up with:
sudo mhwd -f -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime

Seemed to have found solution here: https://www.cupoflinux.com/SBB/index.php?topic=2959.15
…but ran into multiple issues getting through anything. first:
sudo pacman-mirrors -g # This will update the mirrors sudo pacman -Syy # This will sync your local package-list sudo pacman -S gnupg # This will (re-)install your gpg-keys sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro # This will re-populate your Arch- & Manjaro-keys sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys # This will refresh your pacman-keys sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring # This will install the archlinux-keyring sudo pacman -Syyu # This will finally upgrade all your packages
I got to second line and this is what I get:
> sudo pacman -Syy :: Synchronizing package databases... error: failed to update core (unable to lock database) error: failed to update extra (unable to lock database) error: failed to update community (unable to lock database) error: failed to update multilib (unable to lock database) error: failed to synchronize all databases
So I followed up with the next:
sudo rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/ sudo rm -R /root/.gnupg/ sudo gpg --refresh-keys sudo pacman-key --init && pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
got all the way to the last line thinking, OMG I’m saved but instead…
> sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys gpg: refreshing 139 keys from hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net gpg: keyserver refresh failed: General error ==> ERROR: A specified local key could not be updated from a keyserver.
I’m so hoping someone can help me get out of this. I am trying so hard just to get to work. I don’t know what I’m missing… I seem to fix one thing just to have something else break on me. My system was fine till I found out it wasn’t able to detect my audio interface due to being on a RT kernel. Once I switched to the newest stable (I think)… it picked it up without me even asking… at the same time, I lose my dual monitors because for some reason I can’t install the graphics card because of this keyring issue… that was never a problem before, until now, when I needed to get nvidia drivers. But this pgp problem has been here from the get go. I need to find a solution or i’m just gonna have to can it and move on to something else so I can have my studio back.
