==> ERROR: A specified local key could not be updated from a keyserver

Hi Guys,

I am trying to do a key refresh

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

I get

Could you please tell me how to find what local key cannot be updated?

I have followed the pacman troubleshooting in manjaro wiki already without success.

Thanks in advance.

use another server

Hi thanks,

I executed this (I saw it in another post in the Forum)

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys -u --keyserver hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net

gpg: refreshing 140 keys from hkp://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net

(hkp instead of hkps)

However when running

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

it shows a different message (connecting using hkps)

gpg: refreshing 140 keys from hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net

Should I be concerned about that difference hkp or hkps?
Would you know how to make hkps to work?

no is as http:// and https://

I know hkp and hkps relate to tls encryption being used or not
What I mean is… is it safer to use hkps (as it is safer to use https) than hkp?
And if so how can I enforce hkps instead of hkp?
