Sources have to be unique in srcdir (this might require renaming them when downloading, e.g. "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::https://${pkgname}.tld/download/${pkgver}.tar.gz")


Tarballs that download to SRCDEST may collide with other tarballs from other projects (i.e.: you download tarball A named 1.3.tar.gz but a tarball B 1.3.tar.gz already exists in SRCDEST and therefore will not be downloaded)

Thx for the input lmartinez-mirror. I added a provides array and removed python-lolcat from the conflicts array. What do you mean exactly about the tarball? it's name corresponds to the version number and should therefore be unique.

  • If this is an lolcat implementation it should provide lolcat
  • python-lolcat provides and conflicts with lolcat, so you don't need to conflict with it
  • tarball should have a unique name

You have a typo in your PKGBUILD: conflicts=('lolcat' 'pyhton-lolcat') s/ht/th/
