Any ideas other than it obviously is not working with py2 and needs to be updated to py3?

@GalaxyLJGD: added python2-gobject as a dependency, thanks!

Please add "python2-gobject" as a dependency because without it the Bups fails to run and it doesn't open. Sorry for my bad English.

Thanks, worked after I redownloaded the tarball.

@vith: fixed!

@emersion here you go :)

@GutenYe: I'm not against it, because I won't have to ask you to update the PKGBUILD each time I push a new version of bups ;-)

@emersion Updated, thanks. Apparently you're the author of bups, do you want to maintain this package? I can disown it if you want to.
