March 29, 2014 4.2k views
I have recently created a droplet with the ArchLinux OS. I made the inicial set up with the instruccions in this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/initial-server-setup-with-arch-linux/ and all was fine. Then I just run sudo pacman -Syu to upgrade the packages and got an error. Details: (126/126) checking keys in keyring [#################] 100% downloading required keys... :: Import PGP key 4096R/753E0F1F, "Anatol Pomozov ", created: 2014-02-04?

I'd really appreciate some help!

The image that is used is rather old (for arch). You need to run through these steps to get it working
