[SOLVED] Pacman fails to fetch signatures with custom XferCommand

I use pacman with one of the commented out XferCommand from the default /etc/pacman.conf:

XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -L -C - -f -o %o %u

I am not sure why I am using this command, but I have been doing it for years. I think originally I was adding extra flags to work around a proxy server, but at this point the reasoning is lost to time ...

When I run

sudo pacman -Syu

I get lots of errors like

error: cockpit-machines: missing required signature

where each error has a different package name. If I comment out the XferCommand everything works ok. I think my issue might be related to this recent patch: but am not sure.

For completeness, I am hosting my own local pacman cache with pacoloco and updating the mirrors that pacoloco uses with reflector, so there could be other causes.

This is the fix. It has not been backported by Arch yet
