System Updates: "unexpected error"
Just received my first Pro, switched off the modem, mic and both cameras, plugged in charger, connected WiFi and attempted to update/upgrade the soft:


Rebooted, tried again — same thing.

Note that the updates' size appears zero. Weird.

How to debug it? Can I try the same via CLI to see some details? Isn't this a common/known issue with new Pros?
I never had any luck with that.  Use pacman to update from the cli
sudo pacman -Syu

Thanks, but.... It started asking me lots of [Y/n] questions, so I added `--noconfirm`. When that finished, there were lots of stuff like:

:: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/....pkg.tar.xz is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature))
Do you want to delete it? [Y/n]
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature))

And at the end:

Error occurred, no packages were upgraded

Now what?
Uh...I'm an idiot who can't type.  Sorry.
Use -Syyu so it forces the package list to be refreshed

edit: this is what happens to me every time I punch the Post button before rereading what I wrote.

That works muuuch better!
Now it hits this wall trying to download some packages from Connection timeout, or "Operation too slow" on the second attempt. (I can understand why — perhaps due to the sad situation over there).

Surely there must be a way to set a different mirror, closer to where I am (New Zealand)?

Update: "sudo pacman-mirrors --continent" seems to have done the trick.
That .ua server is Ukrainian which is inaccessible last time I checked so I commented it out of the pacman mirrors list which resolved that problem.
So... I kept getting these "keyring is not writable" errors repeatedly trying to upgrade until I found this post suggesting to run:

sudo rm -rf /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
sudo pacman -Sy gnupg archlinux-keyring archlinuxarm-keyring manjaro-keyring manjaro-arm-keyring
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinuxarm manjaro-arm
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

That didn't work straight away either: I had to juggle those commands in random order many times until they eventually allowed
sudo pacman -Syyu --noconfirm
to proceed smoothly. Now upgrade is done, yay! Thanks all.
