Compilation seems to be broken (on aarch64 at least). There are two issues:

  1. The mirrorlist is fetched from a git master branch, so the hashes change from time to time, breaking the package build because of a hard-coded sha256 hash. This file should not be validated
  2. The C++ compiler complains about unknown functions, because several source files miss #include <algorithm> lines. This seems to be a recent change in the compiler behavior, as it built fine before.

Please use the provided patch that fixes both issues:

@solsticedhiver Hi,

Would you mind integrating this patch from Ubuntu ( https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-cacher-ng/3.7.4-1ubuntu1 ), since it would fix exactly my problem.

Greets, Stefan

@DHxchange this is fixed. I have uploaded a libwrap package to AUR.

DHxchange commented on 2023-04-27 04:27 (UTC)

This package no longer builds due to the missing libwrap dependency.

solsticedhiver commented on 2023-01-25 10:23 (UTC)

I couldn't make that change because that's already the dfault value in acng.conf.

I don't know how you end up having the log in /var/tmp. I have them in /var/log/apt-cacher-ng without changing anything...

pellcorp commented on 2023-01-25 01:46 (UTC)

I noticed that logs are currently going to /var/tmp even though the /var/log/apt-cacher-ng/ directory gets created, a simple:

sudo sed -i 's!LogDir.*!LogDir: /var/log/apt-cacher-ng!g' /etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf

after installation fixes this issue, but would be good to get it done by the PKBUILD

Geek_Almighty commented on 2022-01-07 12:23 (UTC)

No one is currently maintaining the package, would anyone like to step in?

I haven't done anything related to AUR pkgs before, don't mind learning, however, I don't want to ruin this for everyone, including myself :D

cherkaba commented on 2021-08-19 17:14 (UTC)

ok i've solved my issue by putting my extra partition in the fstab file ;)

cherkaba commented on 2021-08-19 12:28 (UTC) (edited on 2021-08-19 12:44 (UTC) by cherkaba)

hi, i am facing a probleme with aptCng: it does'nt accepte changing default path for CacheDir.

i did everything too find a solution like:


- # chown -R /NEWPATH/TO/MyCACH = NOK
- # usermod -a -G MYGROUP Apt-Cacher-NG = NOK

the error is same in journalctl:


... apt-cacher-ng[3081]: Error: Cannot create any directory in ...
... systemd[1]: apt-cacher-ng.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE

So what's wrong

sulaweyo commented on 2021-06-04 10:02 (UTC)

As I'm no longer using apt-cacher in my environment I'll disown it so somebody who actually uses it can take it over.
