EASY SOLUTION for Manjaro "Missing Keys" Update and Install Failure
#1
Big Grin 
Out of the box, when Manjaro is started, updates and software installs all fail because there are four missing  (outdated) GPG keys.  

I have seen several posts by other users who are understandably frustrated with this, and give up.  Finding and installing the keys from .zst files is just possible for three of them, though very UNdesirable for security reasons.  The fourth key is impossible to find, effectively making this Manjaro useless for most people.

Example;
------------------------------------
Apply transaction ? [y/N] y
Resolving dependencies...
Checking inter-conflicts...
Checking keyring...                                                                                      [1/1]
Downloading required keys...
Error: key "084A7FC0035B1D49" could not be looked up remotely
Error: required key missing from keyring
Error: Failed to commit transaction

-------------------------------------

HOWEVER, there is a simple solution which solves this!  $ sudo systemctl start pacman-init ...

--------------------------------
$ sudo systemctl start pacman-init
[sudo] password:


$ sudo pacman -Syu tor

------------------------------------------

Once updated, Manjaro is actually a quite slick and useful OS, and EVERYTHING JUST WORKS on the Pinebook Pro.

For those unaccustomed to the Aarch Linux command line oddities, here is a CLI "cheat sheet" for you;

This will save you a good deal of time. Big Grin
