I upgraded pacman -Syu after a month or so and I found that python-peg2 shows up as corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)). I had to do pacman -S archlinux-keyring and then do pacman -Syu.

Shouldn't pacman install core packages like archlinux-keyring first and then proceed with normal packages? I think pacman itself goes through this process so shouldn't archlinux-keyring as well?

Additional info:
* package version(s) Pacman v5.0.1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

SyncFirst hasn't been a thing for years. pacman doesn't upgrade itself before other packages.
