@hugo Indeed, thanks for raising this. This is due to this recent changes in the PKGBUILD, it should not happen again with any future upgrades.

Manual intervention:
Anyone that has clipboard v0.2.0-1 (or any prior version) currently installed and that didn't upgraded to the latest version yet will need to run rm /usr/bin/cb (as root or with elevated privileges) before doing the upgrade.
This will only be needed once and should not happen again with any future upgrades :)

When trying to upgrade the package I get this error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
clipboard: /usr/bin/cb exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

The workaround is to just remove the file then upgrade, as expected.
