I tried again, downloading through the mirrors UK and US, but both failed, leading to error #901.

Are you familiar with the new AUR concept, I try to switch from yaourt to powerpill and bauerbill. These wrappers are looking for a git under which is not existing...

The package that is from the astrill website is broken, Will have to revert it to the 2.9.3 version, I have emailed astrill support re: this issue but have not received a response.

my email is:
If you could send me an email and tell me, what to do as an maintenance officer... (sounds hyperimportant), it would be great, I'm interested!

latest update:
In Germany it worked for a few minutes like a charm, that's why I wrote my last euphoric comment. Now I'm back in China, login has a "connection time out", later my old friend

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

appears again.

I just want to cry!

I'll test and submit change. Still looking for a new maintenence officer :)

Good news!

I'd just like to tell you, if you alter the PKGBUILD with these changes, the installation works:

I changed "url", "source", x86_64's "rpmpkg" and "md5sums".

Don't forget to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

after installation!

Here's the complete script:

# Maintainer: yair reshef <>
# Contributor: piojo, jediofthecode

pkgdesc="VPN configuration tool for Astrill's servers"
arch=('x86_64' 'i686')
if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then

package() {
mv "${srcdir}/usr" "${pkgdir}"

Hey guys ! Sorry for the long delay in response, Been super busy with work. I am taking a look at this and it seems the package that astrill themselved is providing is broken. I am testing out various different methods and will update ASAP!

Dear maintainers!

Since a while I have that problem:

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

Asking Astrill Support team I recentlöy got that answer:
Hi tellmi,

Does your system modify binaries in any way ? For example it strips binaries during installation ?

We check if our software is modified and prevent it to run. It can be modified by a virus for example.

Best regards,
Astrill Development

So I'm forwarding this question to you, but after checking PCKGBUILD I guess, it's only unzipping the downloaded RPM and rezipping to an Arch Package. There's high unlikely a virus responsible.

Did you ever meet that error and do you have an idea, how to solve that?

kind regards


tellmi commented on 2016-08-05 09:08

you have to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

first and exit.
Afterwards you should be able to start it as a normal user.

But I still have "Error#901". Does anyone have an idea?

Okay so I finally installed it. However I get this error now:

ASProxy component has insufficient privilege. Please reinstall the program.

Anyone know whats wrong here?
