I can force it to use the ipv4 server, but using mate-terminal with orca I am unable to edit the /etc/pacman.d/gnu/pgp.conf file to change the server.  Orca will not read it and plume will not open it with sudo rites.  Any ideas on this one?  This is an older arch vm which will not update till the PGP keys have been updated and imported.  I do not have speech in a conc so that would not work.  Thanks.

The SKS pools are not in good shape right now. Should work fine using the
ubuntu keyserver.

You should be able to update the archlinux-keyring package then update the
system. If it's old enough that it doesn't have the key for archlinux-keyring,
it's not going to have pacman 5.2 and won't be able to successfully update
anyway. The hooks in current packages require pacman 5.2.
