Issues updating Garuda


Today I began updating my Garuda installation after 2 weeks or so..

During the update process I got an error message and the update didn't proceed.. I tried updating the mirrorlist but that didn't help..

I was updating using "sudo pacman -Syyu"

Error message:
error: failed retrieving file 'garuda-setup-assistant-1.0.10-1-any.pkg.tar.zst.sig' from : Operation too slow. Less than 1 bytes/sec transferred the last 10 seconds
warning: failed to retrieve some files
error: failed to commit transaction (download library error)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

How to solve this issue?


Update your mirrors.


No it didn't work..

I tired updating the mirrors and after that the downloading process did progress beyond the last part..

However this time I got a new error..

gpg: key : no user ID for key signature packet of class 10

The message is showing for every single application on my system.. It's asking whether i want to update the gpg key.. should i confirm?



Hey.. this resource was really helpful and I finally know what went wrong...

A few days back I was cleaning up my system, and most likely I deleted all the keys when using bleachbit!

Can I recover from that situation? I tired using btrfs snapshot restore, but it doesn't look like it work!

What to do know?

Do I need to uninstall all programs and reinstall them??????

Copy and paste in your terminal:

sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring &&  sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys && upd

I would not recommend to use bleachbit though, but that's just my opinion



Noted.. Which app would you recommend for cleaning and maintaining the system?

My opinion is none. You don't need that in 99% of cases. Just run a btrfs full balance when you feel you need that.

Did my suggestion solved your issue?




No luck..

while running the command you gave me, it is still showing Error: Could not update key....


No.. still facing issues!

Please post the full output of your errors

Did you try the part of the tutorial:
If you have any other errors, there's the "final option"...

nothing is working..

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo rm /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.part
[sudo] password for dibakarg:           
rm: cannot remove '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.part': No such file or directory
[[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/{archlinux,chaotic}-keyring*.pkg.tar.zst
loading packages...
error: '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/archlinux-keyring*.pkg.tar.zst': could not find or read package
error: '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/chaotic-keyring*.pkg.tar.zst': could not find or read package
[[email protected] ~]$ 

Why do you want to install from cache? Just do

sudo pacman -Sy chaotic-keyring archlinux-keyring && sudo pacman -Su 

What I meant is:
sudo rm -fr /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux chaotic
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
sudo pacman -Syyu


Probably there's something I'm missing.
Have you tried the suggested steps in their order or simply reminding the deletion problem you skept them?

No, it finally worked!

So what happened is that I skipped the part where I had to delete the cache.. I just went ahead with running the provided commands in order...

So then when you recommended running the "if you are still getting errors" part, I thought I need to run the delete commands...

However, after deleting the Pacman cache, I tried to install the keyrings from the cache.. which was wrong as pointed out by @dr460nf1r3...

So after running the command he gave, the system updated perfectly and everything is working now...

Thanks, guys for all the help...
