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

I made a huge mess in git, so the checksums of the 2.3.1 archive have changed. The PKGBUILD was updated accordingly. If you use aurutils-git, you should rebuild the package as well, e.g. with aur build -f.

Oops, I see now! That is awesome to be able to sign packages that way. I think the problem I was having was that I somehow installed aurutils with the -s option and it was constantly asking me for my key. Thank you so much for your patience in helping me get to the bottom of this error.

The -s or --sign option is there to sign the packages you built with your GPG key. If you don't enter the key, GPG considers it an error (and thus, so does aur-sync).

If you want to automatically import GPG keys, you can configure GPG as described in man aur-build (auto-key-retrieve). Is that what you mean?

Hi Alad, my deepest thanks for your AUR wrapper.

Question: I'm getting a strange error after every build:

gpg: signing failed: Operation cancelled (if I don't enter my personal GPG key). For instance, was just trying to do aur sync -s zoiper (an aur package which doesn't use an .asc or .gpg as far as I can tell). And I got that error again.

It seems I've signed something strange with my personal key. I've tried deleting and recreating aurutils databases with no luck.

Thanks, updated.

Your logic in the post_update script is faulty. Using (( <num> )) will run if <num> is non-zero, which is true for -1.

@Alad: Not using repose. Just a bare bones aurutils setup. I am happy on the git version for now and I haven't seen this issue with a non-chroot build on my other machines so I will just mentally flag it and raise it again if it becomes a road block.

Note: one last patch for the 1.5 series:

guygma: I haven't heard of such issues before, I guess it's related to makepkg. Are you using repose?

Hey Alad - this is probably my favorite package on the AUR. Unfortunately, it gave me some trouble today. The aurutils-git installs just fine but the aurutils PKGBUILD fails to install as a result of "missing package metadata" when doing makepkg as a normal user and just leaves an aurutils-1.5.3.tar.gz archive in the directory... Not sure whats going on. Maybe it is just me, but that would be surprising given that this is from a fresh chroot built under archiso.
