Did you follow the rest of the thread and try https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … mport_keys

Thanks frank604, I got it to work on the 3rd server attempt.  big_smile

#keyserver hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net
#keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu:11371
keyserver hkp://keyserver.kjsl.com:80 <-- finally worked

My issue is solved! I missed that part in the wiki, thanks again. smile

Re: [SOLVED] error: key "A6234074498E9CEE" could not be looked up remotely

/etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf

keyserver hkp://keyserver.kjsl.com:80

didn't work for me sad

EDIT:

Here's what fixed the problem for me:

# Archive the GNUPG directories
mv $HOME/.gnupg $HOME/.gnupg.bak
sudo mv /root/.gnupg /root/.gnupg.bak

# This one fixed the GNUPG Error
dirmngr </dev/null

# Refresh Keys
pacman-key --init
pacman-key --populate archlinux
pacman-key --refresh-keys

it was "mv /etc/pacman.d/gnupg /etc/pacman.d/gnupg.bak" rather than the same at ".../root/.gnupg..." that actually did something for me and allowed dirmngr to work, not sure if I'm being obvious. I should be, given that is what is written in the wiki (which needs a different password from the forum for the same profile as the forum?).

Re: [SOLVED] error: key "A6234074498E9CEE" could not be looked up remotely

I'm still having this issue. I've tried switching keyservers and rebuilding the keyring. I'm not updating but installing packagekit on a new system. I see that you were upgrading that package and that the key that was having the issue is the same string. Any help? packagekit isn't required for my system, but it makes it easier to use.

Re: [SOLVED] error: key "A6234074498E9CEE" could not be looked up remotely

Hi, I had the same problem and there is also a bug report here: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/43759

For me the following procedure worked (as root):

# rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
# rm -R /root/.gnupg/  # only if the directory exists
# gpg --refresh-keys
# pacman-key --init && pacman-key --populate
# pacman-key --refresh-keys

--EDIT--

Note that since this procedure resets your pacman keyring, you have to add again any custom key

This worked perfectly fine for me. Thanks.

I simply used the advice at https://bbs.archlinux.org/, namely:

sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring && sudo pacman -Syu

That worked for me.

Had the same problem during initial install. Noticed that date was set to Jan 1 2000. As a result, keys were future-dated. No more problems after setting the date/time correctly.

Hi there.

Have a similar problem but at pacman-key --refresh-keys I get:

gpg: keyserver refresh failed: Invalid argument

You really don't learn, do you? Even after eight years, and repeated reminders, you still choose to ignore our rules. Enough is enough.
