Run the following command in case you got errors during "Verifying source file signatures with gpg..."

gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

Alternatively, you can download Dropbox's public key from and import it with:

gpg --import rpm-public-key.asc

You can check whether keys are successfully imported or not using the output of gpg -k. You should find something like this:

pub   rsa2048 2010-02-11 [SC]
uid           [ unknown] Dropbox Automatic Signing Key <>

If you can't run the dropbox@ service normally, try to create a read-only directory ~/.dropbox-dist and run again.

Some useful places for issues about Dropbox itself (not the package):

  1. Official Dropbox user feedback forum

  2. Arch Linux discussion places:, #archlinux on,

No update?

wooque commented on 2020-10-06 09:05

Same here, had to download and import key manually

pitlochry commented on 2020-10-06 08:51

I can confirm, that (using yay without sudo)

gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

does not work. Only downloading directly from and adding with

gpg --import rpm-public-key.asc

works. Can the PKGBUILD be updated with this?

in several machines the command

gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

wont work...

only downloading directrly from and add with:

gpg --import rpm-public-key.asc

Can the PKGBUILD be updated with this?

@Kunda download working fine for me. Check any firewall, proxy, VPN settings. Also try the link via browser.

@idanka: are you using a AUR helper like yay or alike? If so, do not run them as root! Also do import the keys as user not as root.
