@yourmom777 no it should not be included. automake will be pulled by base-devel group which assumed to be installed when building with makepkg. Wiki

automake should be a dependency

Thank you. It installed properly now.

Since this affects the other abook AUR package, I suspect the issue is upstream. Hopefully, at some point, it is resolved.


In case other people experience this same issue on other AUR packages, manually adding the PGP key using a different keyserver is an effective solution.

An example for this package (or abook-configdir) would be:

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --search-keys 5B4E2D0DD7F62B21

It seems lately that the default keyserver has been acting up, rather than an issue with abook or this package.

With this, you can put the signature check back, @eugene. All the best.

I removed signature check for now, @seanbrar

It doesn't happen when I run abook. I don't have it and I'm trying to install it.

Running 'yay -Syu abook' proceeds normally until it tries to import the PGP keys. It happens on my main machine running Arch as well as a fresh Manjaro VM using Pamac.

How do you run abook to get such error, @seanbrar?

Fails after attempting to import PGP keys. At the moment, the AUR package abook-configdir has the same issue.

The error is:

gpg: keyserver receive failed: No name
problem importing keys
