Thank you for not hacking me :)

If there have been social media discussion on it, then I would never see them.
I'm 51, not a bird, I don't tweet, etc... When faced with a "this looks like
an Arch problem" (or any other distro problem), after 20 years of experience
the resounding proper place to address it is to the distros mailing list - to
determining if it can be confirmed and a bug is needed, or, for answer, since
there will be no other social whatever that knows more about Arch, than Arch.

When things that are supposed to be seamless and take place under the hood
without user intervention -- don't, for whatever reason, I like to understand
why if I'm going to rely on my system. I have never created any key for the
keyring so there is no possibility I match the key with a future date problem.

I'll search again through the forums to see how to completely dump and restore
my arch keyring because --init --updatedb --refresh-key don't work. And, no,
I'm certainly not going to trust and social media "Hey, try this..." to fix
the problem.
