Unable to install packages from pacman due to PGP signature error

Hi guys, before I write here, I assure you that I carefully read all the guides and various solutions on this forum, I also tried to follow other guides from other distros like manjaro, but nothing solved my problem.
Yesterday I formatted my Garuda Linux partition because a mess had happened with Nvidia drivers, and on first boot it asked me to upgrade the system (as it should) however the latter failed.
This is the output:

Si sono verificati degli errori, nessun pacchetto è stato aggiornato.

I hope that even if the language of the error is Italian you can still understand it.
In the various guides I followed there were commands like:

As you can see every command fails, I also tried via garuda assistant to disable chaotic aur from the repository list, but still the error persists

I also tried to format garuda again from 0, no luck
