Following up on my previous comment. I had the same issue with the and the discussion there said that this can happen when someone changes the package and republishes it without bumping the version. See the comments there.

That being said, this solves the validity check and I can install the latest updates now. For what it's worth I am using yay.

rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/connect

Updated to do this so hopefully won't break!

Damn, it changes so frequently that every time i have to modify the PKGBUILD myself. This "gotoh" or something is so unreliable. I suggest to use the source package in debian/ubuntu mirrors, so the PKGBUILD would be more stable. I see no breaking update in this package, so stay with debian/ubuntu would be fine.
