im getting the same issue as tri976, seeing lots of tar SCHILY.fflags messages, pretty much for every packages compiled using apacman, example:-

warning: need to run apacman --gendb (found 4 AUR files!)

tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'
tar: google-chrome-61.0.3163.91-1: Not found in archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

any way around this?

I'm getting the below error message when installing aur package with this program
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'
It was able to download the package, make it, but fail with the above message afterward. Is my system missing something? Can you show me how to fix it? Thanks.

@rbellamy and @wallentx
Accepted pull request from @justin8 and added some additional fixes in v2.6

Please report application issues upstream. Either way, there is already reports of it and a fix here waiting on oshazard to pull:

@rbellamy I just had a issue with the invalid --pkg in makepkg as well. Apparently apacman needs to be updated since --pkg was dropped.

When trying to use apacman to install bcompare, I get a weird error:
2016-03-20 17:44:37
rbellamy@eanna i ~ % apacman -S bcompare-nautilus

Aur Targets (1): bcompare-nautilus

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]
-> Split package base: bcompare
-> PKGBUILD contains: bcompare bcompare-kde bcompare-nautilus bcompare-thunar bcompare-cinnamon bcompare-mate
makepkg: invalid option '--pkg'

==> ERROR: the build failed
-> Status failed (1): bcompare-nautilus
No idea why the '--pkg' switch is showing up... everything seems to behave when I pull the bcompare PKGBUILD and manually run makepkg.

@tigran, thanks for the tip!
