I modified both the eula_text.html name in the source and install script, and the source web path, achieving nothing.

I ended up deleting the eula lines and hash entirely from the PKGBUILD.

Para corregir el error sha256sum solo hay que modificar el PKGBUILD

sha256sums=('8a0e9057c2a27bfcc74e210b848e6824e3c6c8f41232ca034362bcddfb95acbd' '570a397d6ae062393a04554f0e371cf2209d7eee176fc8dc0bdfb43c6a38f2be')

I solved it for now by manually checking and altering the sha256 sum of the current eula_text.html in the PKGBUILD.

Today when I tried to watch Netflix, I got this missing component error, it was working before:

Error Code: M7702-1003

We cannot find all the required components to play Netflix on this device. Please visit chrome://components, locate the WidevineCdm component, and click the "Check for update" button.

I am on Chromium instead and this package from AUR was working nicely. Any update recently that may have broken things?

Seems like the old Chromium eula file gets left behind and the installer tries to keep using it.

I ended up fixing this by running pacaur -Sc to remove untracked files.

Validity check fails at every update when using aurman.

I don't think it's the helper's fault: I'm using yay.

I had to do the same change as mapolidori (the browser subdirectory was already removed - so I only had to change chrome-eula_text.html:: to eula_text.html::) and additionally I obviously had to change the last line from install -Dm644 chrome-eula_text.html [...] to install -Dm644 eula_text.html [...]

After that the update went perfectly fine

Whatever helper you two are using is doing totally idiotic things. The changes mapolidori mentions wouldn't even result in a functioning PKGBUILD.

EDIT: I'm using pacaur 4.7.90

I was having the same failed validity check issue. As ixil commented, I had to remove 'browser' from the link. I also had to remove 'chrome-' from 'chrome-eula_text.html'.

I changed source=('chrome-eula_text.html::<>'

to source=('eula_text.html::<>'

The update worked perfectly after that.
