Cannot update manjaro-gnome-settings signature is unknown trust

I just did a clean install a few weeks ago. Now I want to update but this happens.

pamac update -a --no-confirm                              ✔

Three questions:

  1. Why does this happen?
  2. Could I have prevented this?
  3. How to solve it?

Update your mirrors first, that is not the most recent version of manjaro-keyring. See Pacman-mirrors - Manjaro

But… I had just learned not to do that:

as now I am back to the issue (that I could reproduce easily after a new clean install from image), when I use --continent:

::INFO Downloading mirrors from Manjaro
::INFO => Mirror pool:
::INFO => Mirror status:
::INFO User generated mirror list
::INFO Custom mirror file saved: /var/lib/pacman-mirrors/custom-mirrors.json
::INFO Using default mirror file
::INFO Querying mirrors - This may take some time

::INFO Writing mirror list
::South_Africa    :
::Kenya           :
::INFO Mirror list generated and saved to: /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

While I am in Netherlands, not using VPN etc.

I will just never use --continent and stick to --fasttrack!
I can update normally, so that is solved :slight_smile: But I thought Manjaro would regularly update mirrors? Because my install is just 1 month old!

The pamac-mirrorlist.timer should run every Thursday at 7am. However, the manjaro-keyring package was updated very recently and not all mirrors may have picked it up when you attempted to update.
