Pamac says Unaccaptable TLS Certificate


Every time I try to install anything using pamac it gives me this response:

Synchronizing package databases… Error 404 Unacceptable TLS certificate

The problem doesn’t seem to happen on yay or with pacman. I tried doing some googling but only found things regarding flatpak and coulnd’t figure out if this was related to a similar issue.

Any help would be appriciated.

Then switch to a mirror with a valid certificate.

forgive me I am rather new to linux, how would I do that?

Just refresh your mirror list. :arrow_down:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu

I executed that command and now when I try to use pamac it gives me the follwoing:

Waiting for another package manager to quit…

That’s because Add / Remove Software probably is still accessing the database. Easy solution is to reboot and try again.

Nevermind, I just went to /var/lib/pacman and deleted the db.lck file and that resolved it

That too. :wink: I purposely did not mention that as one should not to that unless one knows one should. In this case you were correct to do that.

Yeah, I don’t share the computer with any other users so I’m not too worried. Thanks.
