[Solved] error: key "6D42BDD116E0068F" could not be looked up remotely

I am trying to find out where these keys are looked up an on what port they are looked up.

I can't control the firewall on this network so I need to find out what specific ports are involved in the look up or a manual way of importing the key for the keyring.

What I am getting in full is:

[root@forestserver ~]# pacman -S archlinux-keyring
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

Packages (1) archlinux-keyring-20200603-1

Look at man pacman-key and at the gpg configuration residing in /etc/pacman.d/gnupg by default. You'll find more information in: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … ge_signing

Many thanks V1del. I found that when I ran a refresh keys there was a problem with the .gnupg directory, in this case /root/.gnupg did not exist so I created it and the keys now check out.

What I need to do now is work my way through the ALA to get this server up to date.


Kind regards
