problem importing PGP keys

I hadn't updated my archlinux32 installation for a few months and when I tried to do a system upgrade I got lots of errors about invalid keys.  I tried to follow the instructions at https://archlinux32.org/download/ "https://archlinux32.org/download/:Fixing Broken Keyring(s)"  When I execute

[root@mainpc cbailey]# pacman -S archlinux-keyring archlinux32-keyring

I get:

warning: archlinux-keyring-20220125-1.0 is up to date -- reinstalling

Any suggestions?

Re: problem importing PGP keys

I'm not sure why those instructions tell you to install archlinux-keyring (the 64-bit version) alongside archlinux32-keyring.  I guess that was useful when we were migrating from that service way back when, but these days, I think it's overkill and could potentially be causing this problem.  Just do a pacman -S archlinux32-keyring' instead and see if that works for you.

Re: problem importing PGP keys

I tried

pacman-key --init
pacman-key --populate archlinux archlinux32

then tried to update archlinux32-keyring again and this time it worked.

Tried performing a full system upgrade again and this time it worked!

Re: problem importing PGP keys

Yes, especially if you're coming from an old update, it's often worth trying multiple different approaches until something sticks.
