Just moved from windows to manjaro and i cant seem to get package manager to work.
apps seem to download until it gets to the keys part and it fails.
i figured it was a keyring issue
i followed the pacman troubleshooting error of keys
but when i ran
mkdir -pv $HOME/.cache/pkg/ && sudo pacman -Syw archlinux-keyring manjaro-keyring --cachedir $HOME/.cache/pkg/
in the terminal it tells me
:: Synchronizing package databases... core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date multilib is up to date :: Some packages should be upgraded first... resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... Packages (1) archlinux-keyring-20220727-1 Total Installed Size: 1.55 MiB Net Upgrade Size: 0.02 MiB :: Proceed with installation?

[Y/n] y error: key "6D42BDD116E0068F" 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 did step 4, after step 5 and it said this
loading packages... error: '/home/user/.cache/pkg/*.tar.zst': could not find or read package
went to manjaro system manager to make sure the clock is correct.
i did sudoedit /etc/pacman.conf and changed the siglevel to ‘Never’(yeah its risky but nothing was downloading)
how can i get the keys to get package manager to work?
i appriciate all the help!
