Atom invalid signature

Going crazy trying to install atom. It was installed, but I guess there was an update and it was throwing invalid sig errors. So I removed atom to reinstall, but still same error. All my searches for a solution have come to naught.

Here's the error:

atom-editor-beta-bin: signature from "Pedro Henrique Lara Campos <[email protected]>" is invalid
:: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/atom-editor-beta-bin-1.61.0beta0-1.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)).

Sometimes you must just wait and try later the update again, but in moment it does not work


Database is rebuilding this second, please wait a short while.


Database has been rebuilt, I have bumped and redeployed this package. Please try again.


One last thing to note, though.
The Atom Text Editor, previously managed by GitHub, now owned by Microsoft, is slated to be Sunset on December 15th, 2022?

I second this. Please do consider moving to an alternative. This will still remain in Chaotic until it is fully end-of-life though.

Thanks! But damn.... not that's it's being sunsetted, but that's owned by M$.

Well, VSCode is pretty impressive. They took everything that was good about Atom, fixed the electron aspects of it to make it faster, stronger, better, and made a much better code editor that was actually fast and not nearly as much of a memory hog as Atom was.

I hate Microsoft as well, however, this is one of few products of theirs I can actually recommend and use.


You can also consider VSCodium, if you have spite for M$. It's already on Chaotic-AUR, we also have vscodium-marketplace for proper extension support. :slight_smile:
