Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

Update of ArchLinux system (pacman -Su) fails due to invalid signatures (installed in VirtualBox http://scicomp.web.unc.edu/scicompunc/)

Example message:

error: icu: signature from "Andreas Radke <andyrtr@archlinux.org>" is invalid
:: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/icu-67.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)).

Similar messages for all packages.

Notes:

1. Have tried pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring && pacman -Su
2. Have tried pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring && pacman-key --populate archlinux
3. Time seems accurate but ntpd not active (cannot install it due to above PGP signature errors)

This is a system provided for students in scientific computation, but I'm not a SysAdmin expert. Help resolving the update issue is most appreciated.

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

What is the output of

pacman-key --list-keys ADC8A1FCC15E01D45310419E94657AB20F2A092B

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … l_the_keys

I recently had this issue, it may be just as expedient to remove all the keys (/etc/pacman.d/gnupg) as per the above wiki section "Resetting all the keys", then re-init and populate the keys also in the instructions in that section.
However you could instead target the specific problematic keys.

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

Removing /etc/pacman.d/gnupg followed by re-init and populate does not solve the problem. After pacman -Su

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

Hmm then im not sure, in theory those should be fresh keys.
Outside of rebooting to ensure the system is in a good state, I dont know what to do outside of manually checking those invalid keys/ packages if they are indeed corrupt which I think will be unlikely but we may need to use y flag to refresh.
What is the result if you reboot and instead force a refresh and update with pacman -Syyuu ?

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

Upon reboot, key reinit, and pacman -Syyuu the behavior is the same, invalid PGP key.

If anyone has the time/inclination, the virtual machine is downloadable from http://scicomp.web.unc.edu/mathunc/. Thanks.

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

You either are actually getting corrupt packages, or you're running into a bug in VirtualBox on Windows.

Edit: For everyone trying to help, look at the actual error! This isn't unknown trust. This isn't missing keys.

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

Indeed, but then the most likely reason is still that

3. Time seems accurate but ntpd not active (cannot install it due to above PGP signature errors)

"seems" is far too close to "should"

I'm guessing you're on an old version of VirtualBox, right?

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

Bad signature calculations has been in issue in VirtualBox since they released their hyper-v backend. A couple of people reported that it was fixed in 6.1.14, but maybe not completely.

Here are some things you can try out, e.g. changing clocksource, disable rdtscp, change gnupg hardware features, ...

Re: Cannot update due to multiple invalid signatures

I was having this problem (virtualbox on windows) and I found upgrading to 6.1.16 fixed the issue.
