Daniel Wallace is invalid

Here's a dump of my attempt to update my system.  I have not been able to locate information that help me resolve this.

server$ sudo pacman -Syu
error: pacman: signature from "Daniel Wallace <danielwallace@gtmanfred.com>" is invalid
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra                                  1807.5 KiB  1800K/s 00:01 [########################################################################] 100%

pacman is up to date
error: database 'pacman' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature))



I know my system not up to date.  Running pacman v4.1.2 with libalpm v8.0.2
Any suggestions for solving this issue?

Running with -Syyu results in the following:

server$ sudo pacman -Syyu

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

Thank's for the reply but I've tried refreshing the keys using 'pacman-key --refresh-keys'  and I've tried selecting different mirrors.  How do I clear or reset the sgniture of Daniel Wallace?

I dimly remember reinstalling archlinux-keyring and/or calling 'pacman-key --populate' followed by --refresh-keys and maybe --updatedb in a similar case.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

What is the pacman repository? It looks like all the issues are with that.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

First, please use code tags.  Really.

Second, you were asked about this pacman repo.  What is that?  It's not listed in our wiki.  Is it just a typo in your pacman.conf?

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

Please use the code tags for pasting code.

What is the content of /etc/pacman.conf? What is the pacman repo? Only the first three repos you have are official Arch repos.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

There are references to a pacman database in your output.

...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
pacman is up to date   <------- WTF?

I think the invalid key is related to this. Post your pacman.conf. Also, code tags.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

You've been a member of these forums for 8 years and you've never seen the little "BBCode" link ... nor learned to google something like "Code tags" when someone mentions them?

You do have a [pacman] repo at the bottom there.  What is that?

It looks to be an empty repository of all things. And it looks to be what is causing the error, having had a look at the repository tarballs, supposedly signed by Daniel Wallace.

@Archadious: Try removing said repository and try again.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

I removed the last two lines of my pacman.conf file and ran -Syu again.  This time the update stops when it can not  import the key "Eric Belanger"

Closer to a solution but still not there.  I will review the wiki page on keys.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

Solved

Not being able to solve this issue with SigLevel set to Required I disabled it by changing the line in my pacman.conf file from "SigLevel = Require ..." to "SigLevel = Never".  Then I was able to do a complete system update, reinstall archlinux-keyring and change my pacman.conf SigLevel back to Required.  Problem solved.

Thanks to those who posted comments that were actually intended to assist me, I do appreciate it.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

I've seen something similar recently. In one of my machines I think I solved it by installing archlinux-keyring first then doing -Syu.

In my first encounter with the problem I did try to find the cause of the problem and at the time I found that the missing key didn't manage to find its way into pool.sks-keyservers.net, if configuring another keyserver (like pgp.mit.edu) then things would work.

Ater

pacman-key --init

, you should have ran

pacman-key --populate archlinux

. It was also in a comment in pacman.conf.

Re: Daniel Wallace is invalid

Remove the [pacman] repository I made for our Archlinux image at Rackspace.

It had a couple things in it, we had the grub-legacy package, back when the image was still using grub-legacy.
It also had the initial package for openstack-guest-agents-unix, before I just put it in community, because before that it was being installed and not trackered
It had a linux-rackspace kernel, which was never used, but it was my attempt at getting the images team to stop custom compiling the kernels for each new arch image.

This has nothing to do with the old bug, this one I made blank and broke the database on purpose so that people would look at their pacman.conf and remove the old empty repository.

That answers that question.

It's a shame nobody had told the support operatives I contacted about this when all my pacmans (pacmen?) broke! sad
