When gnupg is upgraded from 2.1.11 to 2.1.12 (currently in [core]) pacman-key is no longer able to verify package signatures. For the same reasons dbscripts will no longer work when gnupg is updated on nymeria.


% pacman-key -v linux-4.5.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.sig
==> Checking linux-4.5.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.sig...
gpg: assuming signed data in 'linux-4.5.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz'
gpg: Signature made Sa 07 Mai 2016 21:05:38 CEST using RSA key ID 7EDF681F
gpg: Note: trustdb not writable
gpg: Good signature from "Tobias Powalowski <>" [full]
gpg: aka "Tobias Powalowski <>" [full]
==> ERROR: The signature identified by linux-4.5.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.sig could not be verified.
