Manjaro doesn't update

Postby viking60 » 07 Jun 2016, 16:37

Manjaro has this problem that people download the install CD and it is already so old that the the signing keys are outdated.

So the update fails and the forums are flooded with questions about this. I don't know why this is a particular Manjaro problem -but it seems to be.

This also happens if it is a long time since you updated.

To fix this:

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Syyuu archlinux-keyring manjaro-keyring
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
sudo pacman -Syyuu


That should do it.
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
