Unknown key of DEB_Arch_Extra.db.sig

Hello ! Since the last upgrade of manjaro-system I am unable to install any package due to an unknown key of DEB_Arch_Extra.db.sig :

I have manually recreated gpg keys for pacman with the following commands, but the error persists :

sudo rm -rf /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

I have another computer using Manjaro, and everything works correctly on it. Can anyone help me ?

Remove or comment out Mega’s repo in your /etc/pacman.conf, then update. You can try adding their repo again after.

Thanks for the help, I had totally forgotten that I had added this repo. :sweat_smile:

Did you locally sign the key after adding the repo?
