i think both pacmac and pamac having same issue and this issue is mentioned here

but problem not solved methods shown there

You basically just need to install chaotic-keyring before all other packages as it contains the new signing key which is shown as unknown currently. (kind of a security measure) Then, you can proceed installing/updating.

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

thanks bro it worked :ok_hand: :ok_hand:
now i got no errors

sudo pacman -Syu

there is nothing to do

The keyring on the Chaotic-AUR website is still the old signing key. What's the new one?

The key which is mentioned on the Chaotic-AUR website is still valid, we just added 2 new ones (one for the soon to be revived Garuda builder as Pedro did not want to reuse his own key for it and one for my VPS as I lost the previous key during backing up - lesson learned! :sweat_smile: )


The syslinks were indeed outdated. Pedro fixed them now...

(The key that signs the keyring is still that one in the site)


Thanks a bunch, @dr460nf1r3 & @lolimancer. :happy_dance:

@lolimancer I just noticed you--nice to see you. :smiley:


this worked for me too:
