pacman error: key "BC26F752D25B92CE272E0F44F7FD5492264BB9D0" is unknown

After importing the keyring and adding the "server entries" to /etc/pacman.conf like instructed on the setup page, I just get an error that the key is unknown.

When I get asked if I want to ":: Import PGP key BC26F752D25B92CE272E0F44F7FD5492264BB9D0?" and answer with y, it tells me that it can not be looked up remotely and will fail to synchronise the repository.

Output:

I've just tried the instructions on a Fedora VM & updated them again. It looks like the key that's used to sign the keyring package needs importing first which you can do with these commands.

Code: Select all

sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --recv BC26F752D25B92CE272E0F44F7FD5492264BB9D0 --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com
sudo pacman-key --lsign BC26F752D25B92CE272E0F44F7FD5492264BB9D0
Once you've done that then you should be able to install the devkitpro keyring and hopefully it should all just work.
