How to remove Blackarch repo and keyring?

A long time back I had activated Blackarch repo in pacman.conf by uncommenting it. I have not installed anything from it. Now I commented those lines in pacman.conf again because it was making updating slow. garuda-update tries to update the keyring and fails by:

error: target not found: blackarch-keyring

How do I get rid of that? Probably some hook? How to deal with that?

There’s a file called “blackarch-key.hook” in pacman.d folder and I renamed it. That didn’t solve the issue.

I read this post already: How to remove "blackarch"-Repo?

Please post the output of garuda-inxi for all topics in the Issues & Assistance category as requested in the template.


Try uninstalling it.

sudo pacman -R blackarch-keyring

Yes that solves it. I didn’t know the keyring was a package.
