I installed manjaro on an old laptop today and am in the process of trying to update it.

just using pacman -Syyu eventually gave me

(383/383) checking keys in keyring
downloading required keys...
:: Import PGP Key KEY, "Brad Fanella <cesura@archlinux.org>", 
created: 2018-03-2? [Y/n] Y
error: key "Brad Fanella <cesura@archlinux.org>" could not be imported
error: required key missing from keyring
error: failed to commit transaction (unexpected error)

I tried this sequence, to no avail:

sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S manjaro-keyring archlinux-keyring
sudo pacman -Syyu

Any ideas?


Tried pacman-key --recv-keys F382BBBD and got this:

gpg: key 81A402D4F382BBBD was created 6 days in the future (time warp or clock problem)
gpg: key 81A402D4F382BBBD: no valid user IDs
gpg: this may be caused by a missing self-signature
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:           w/o user IDs: 1


From EDIT 1 output,

I updated the clock using sudo ntpdate -vu time.nist.gov

then pacman-key --recv-keys F382BBBD and voilà.

That was annoyingly simple.
