[SOLVED] Can I trust this PGP key?

Today I tried to do update with

sudo pacman -Syu

then is says...

Packages (6) argon2-20171227-3  blender-17:2.79-9  jansson-2.10-3  krita-3.3.3-1  mpfi-1.5.2-1  pari-2.9.4-1

Would it be okay to press Y in here?

How do I find out which PGP key can be trusted and which are not?

Re: [SOLVED] Can I trust this PGP key?

I'm telling you that that key can be trusted. big_smile

But seriously, this happens every time a new Trusted User is added.

Importing a PGP key does not designate it as a "trusted" key, the fact that that key has been signed by three or more of the Arch Linux Master Keys to form a PGP web of trust is what designates it as trusted.

Your other option is to first install the new archlinux-keyring package from the testing repository.

P.S. The forums do not accept arbitrary HTML, so instead you should use BBCode and specifically:

[code]This is some code.[/code]

As long as you stay on IRC, apparently. wink

Re: [SOLVED] Can I trust this PGP key?

Hello, Eli Schwartz.  I am having trouble with your key having marginal trust:

error: opendkim: signature from "Eli Schwartz <eschwartz@archlinux.org>" is marginal trust
:: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/opendkim-2.10.3-5-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)).

I also get the same error message when trying to install dovecot-2.3.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.

What's going on?  I tried to enable the 'testing' repository but and the latest version of the archlinux-keyring package I can install is 20180108-1.  What version has your keys in it?

Here is a shell session (with the testing repo disabled) showing how I updated archlinux-keyring but I still have errors checking your signature on the opendkim package:

https://gist.github.com/DavidEGrayson/4 … 82aaca6f7f

So what commands am I supposed to run to get your key trusted?  Thanks!

Marginal trust has nothing to do with this thread. Read https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=233480 and https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=233710, then start your own thread if you can't figure it out.

You should delete the cached package in /var first in case the download was actually corrupted.  After that try to update again which will redownload the package.  If that fails then continue other steps.

No. Read the actual error, it has nothing to do with the download.

I defer to an actual bug wrangler.

Wow, thanks for the fast response!  The two commands posted here by zpg443 in the thread you linked to did the trick for me:  https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 6#p1760826
