AUR_LIB_DIR was not correctly subsituted in aurutils 3.1.1. The fix is in 3.1.2. To update:

git clone
cd aurutils

Fixed in 2.3.2.

==> ERROR: '-d' does not have a valid database archive extension. To "fix" the issue you may uninstall the xdelta3 dependency. In aurutils 2.3.1 the delta option gets enabled automatically for repo-add but it was removed [1] in pacman.

It might be fixed in the git version of aurutils [2] but I did not test that as removing xdelta3 worked just fine.

[1] [2]

==> ERROR: '-d' does not have a valid database archive extension. I have the same issue. I also thought it is a problem on my side. But now that you wrote the same thing, I guess it is related to the pacman upgrade to v5.2 (or something like that)

Whenever I try to aur sync ... a package, I get this failure after the package builds:

==> Finished making: aurutils 2.3.1-1 (Thu 24 Oct 2019 11:38:39 PM EDT) ==> Cleaning up... ==> ERROR: '-d' does not have a valid database archive extension.

Has something gone wrong with my aur database, perhaps?

@jogdand thank you repo-remove worked.

made a mistake and deleted my original comment, so for context i had a package that i removed that was still in my custom package database. it kept trying to upgrade whenever i used aur sync -u

used repo-add before, but didn't know about repo-remove

jogdand commented on 2019-10-16 05:50

@krakenfury, you can use repo-remove as described in this ( issue.

Also: you might want to delete deltas. For this just add .deltas suffix in package name and repeat repo-remove

zsh completion works fine for me. I don't support or use third-party projects like oh-my-zsh. You do need compinit enabled - see man zshcompsys.

Hey, zsh completion seems to be not working, do i have to install some other packages or plugins for oh-my-zsh?

Edit: thanks, compinit worked.

Got a failure with SHA256sum on this one. It seems that it should be: 5c610fdf4f9bed7cc13d3da61f0795296314f93f71ee6a808f9518311ff999a1
