Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

Well there are your errors, but I don't know what they mean. Invalid packet makes me think there might be corruption, did you verify the sig on the image?

FWIW, I just booted up the latest image in VirtualBox and pacman-init.service had no problems.

Thanks for your time. Much appreciated.

I've checked sha256 of the iso, which is correct. Output of gpg check seems good too.

Interesting point. I've just booted the iso, waited a few minutes, and pacman-init.service shows "Finished Initializes Pacman keyring" without failures.

I take a deeper look just before I enter the pacstrap command and let you know.

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

This most likely happens because you ran pacstrap or pacman before pacman-init.service finished.

From a quick test in VirtualBox, looking at "CPU" in

systemctl status -l pacman-init.service

I got:

archlinux-2022.08.05-x86_64.iso	archlinux-keyring 20220727-1	1 min 27.085s
archlinux-2022.07.01-x86_64.iso	archlinux-keyring 20220424-1	42.540s
archlinux-2022.06.01-x86_64.iso	archlinux-keyring 20220424-1	41.926s

Manually upgrading only archlinux-keyring in an old ISO:

archlinux-2022.07.01-x86_64.iso	archlinux-keyring 20220727-1	1min 27.438s

With archlinux-keyring 20220727-1, pacman-init.service takes longer to finish. hmm

Yes! I can confirm this now. Waiting until pacman-init.service finishes before calling pacstrap is the solution which works for me.

Thank you very much @nl6720 and @Scimmia!

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

The error still persists on 2022.08.05!
Also pacman-init fails to start after using pacman/pacstrap.
As mentioned before, waiting for the service to be started manually works!
I can only guess, but this is probably a bug with the repos or the iso because doing pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring results in the same error.

That's because the archlinux-keyring package's install script executes pacman-key and interacts with the pacman's keyring. Doing it while pacman-init.service has not finished, screws it up.
Reinstalling the same version of archlinux-keyring will not help anyway. I've edited my previous posts to add the "--needed" option to the pacman command.

It's not really clear if it's a pacman-key (or gpg) issue of being slow or an archlinux-keyring issue of being too bloated.
At least for now, the solution is to not run pacstrap and/or pacman before pacman-init.service has finished.

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

The error is fixed by

pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring

as @daenney suggested. However, as partial upgrade is not recommended, will this command result in any problem? I haven't seen any problem so far.

I'll try newer installation iso later.

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

Just for reference, I opened https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … issues/191 to track the issue of pacman-init.service taking too long to finish.

No, but one should then run pacman -Su
This updates the keyring, then upgrades anything else that needs be upgraded.

Edit:  Also, we have received a suggestion.  This thread seems to be tracking two different issues.  The suggestion is that we split the thread into two halves to track the problem with the iso, and the other an issue with a race condition with pacman-init.service.  I've read the thread, and I am afraid it is so intertwined so make splitting unworkable.  Sorry about that.

I advise against that. You'll just fill up the tmpfs and if there's a kernel upgrade, you won't be able to load new kernel modules.

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

I am not sure I understand why?  I am suggesting that as the next command after the pacman -Sy archlinx-keyring
Will those two commands, in that order, update the database, update archlinx-keyring (only), and then updates everything else that needed updating according to the new database -- but using the new keyring?

Or do have a fundamental flaw in my understanding of what is going on?

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

Because this is the live environment we're talking about. The root filesystem is a overlayfs mount with tmpfs as the upperdir. Installing things to the live environment is bound to fill up the tmpfs.

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

I am having the same problem related to key. I am trying it in VM. Nothing seems to be working whatever mentioned here. Even when I do the system upgrade it throws error, saying there is no free space on the disk.

what I have tried so far:

pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring
pacman -Sy --needed archlinux-keyring
pacman-key --init
root@archiso - # archinstall

Re: Package signature error when running pacstrap

That's the aforementioned archiso#191 issue.
The solution is to wait until pacman-init.service finishes before running pacman, pacstrap or archinstall.

You can follow it with journalctl:

journalctl -u pacman-init.service -f

You can proceed once you see:

Finished Initializes Pacman keyring
