After installing the macOS binary for pacman, I tried installing the packages by following the instructions at Instead of a list or an update, I instead get tons of errors relating to file retrieval (which can be seen in the image below).
File comment: Error messages within terminal

Not downloaded yet
How do I get the rest of the installation to be successful and get rid of these errors?

Looks like something has changed recently with ca root certificates in OSX. What version is that?

I'm going to have to look at how pacman is compiled for OSX and see if I can get it to use the keychain stores but in the meantime can you try downloading cacert.pem from and copy it to /etc/ssl/cert.pem on your machine? That should get it working in the short term I hope.
