Something weird happened when I just upgraded the package. The service file was masked, and unable to unmask it. When i tried query the files from the package (pacman -Ql callibre-web), it was empty? Trying reinstalling it told me files already existed?

[EDIT] Fixed, issuing pikaur -S calibre-web --overwrite=* resolved it.

Missing python-cryptography dependency

plenaerts commented on 2023-05-15 16:06 (UTC)

Yes, it's basically ... this :

And someone seems to have written a script to output a dependency tree if you have custom built dependencies in your installed AUR packages :-)

@fryfrog That fixed it!

For others that run into same issue, create a text file with all dependencies and install it from that list. That will force a reinstallation of all packages. I my case; pikaur -S - < list.

I would try clean rebuilding every aur python dep of this package.

Just updated my system, where Python was updated to v3.11.3. This seems to break something, because i get this error when trying to start the service;

maj 05 18:42:17 kvm-web systemd[1]: Started Calibre-web. maj 05 18:42:18 kvm-web[8096]: *** "flask-limiter" is needed for calibre-web to run. Please install it using pip: "pip install fla> maj 05 18:42:18 kvm-web systemd[1]: calibre-web.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=8/n/a maj 05 18:42:18 kvm-web systemd[1]: calibre-web.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

I have flask-limiter installed, but it seems that there's some error related to latest python I guess?

>>> import flash_limiter Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'flash_limiter'

Btw, how the heck do I get the green box with text? Can't find it in the markdown syntax guideline.. :)

So, apparently I was not entirely accurate. My description below may not have solved the problem for everyone. Or anyone. I had updated python-limits to 3.3.0 and then ran into the issue below with python-importlib_resources. The issue came from python-limits, not python-flask-limiter.

The python-limits package maintainer has updated python-limits and added the dependency on python-importlib_resources. Performing an AUR upgrade of the python dependencies should fix the issue we have with calibre-web for everyone.

The calibre-web logs are pretty scarce.

I've grepped the calibre-web src for flask-limiter, turns out it tries to import flask-limiter in

Trying to import flask-limiter in a python interpreter shows the underlying error:

python-flask-limiter is missing a dependency: python-importlib_resources

you can manually install it using pacman -S --asdeps python-importlib_resources and it should work around this problem.

Don't auto-remove the package. Until python-flask-limiter adds it as a dependency it will pop up as an unneeded package.

I've asked the python-flask-limiter maintainer to add this package as a dependency.

For some reason, my installation isn't seeing flask-limiter.

fryfrog@apollo /usr/lib/calibre-web 🔒 via 🐍 v3.10.10 ❯ sudo -u calibre-web /usr/lib/calibre-web/
*** "flask-limiter" is needed for calibre-web to run. Please install it using pip: "pip install flask-limiter" ***

It is installed, but some of the paths are Flask_Limiter and some are flask_limiter, but I'm not familiar enough w/ python packages on Arch to know if that is an issue.

Just the top of basic install details.
