It seems like the Blackarch repo is currently broken because of GNUPG 2.4 deprecating SHA256 Signed keys if i understood the Github thread correctly

Now i have the issue of not being able to update my repositories at all because of this error:

And trying to downgrade Gnupg gives me another error related to blackarch:

Is there a workaround for now?

Comment out the repo in /etc/pacman.conf and proceed with updating everything else is probably one way to go about it.
