error: failed to synchronize all databases (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature))

I have already tried

  1. mv ~/.gnupg/ ~/.gnupg-old
    pacman-key --init
    pacman-key --populate archlinux
  2. comment out everything in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist, add Server = https://www.blackarch.org/ at the bottom, run pacman -Scc, pacman-key --refresh-keys and finally pacman -Syy
  3. rm /var/lib/pacman/sync/blackarch.db.sig
    pacman -Syy

I am sure its a silly small mistake from my side - am a NooB can someone help.

Try using
"update" in the command line

That won't work for blackarch. That guide is rather out of date, I'd say, especially because we have fancy scripts to automate this nowadays.

@erwinrommel please run update remote fix in your terminal emulator of choice.

Should we make update remote default
In Garuda assistant update button ?

No. It overwrites a bunch of config files in an attempt to fix any issues that may exist. It's supposed to be a script used in response to an issue and is basically a back door cause it runs a script from a remote source.

So how about giving another button to do so with the description ?

This worked like magic. Thank you so very much.

How often do you expect this to be used? Idk maybe add it as a right click menu option to the existing button? Don't wanna clutter up the menu for something that shouldn't be clicked without a good reason.

Might as well be magic! Glad I could help.
