I wouldn't <3 chattr +i, but maybe symlinking the folder to /dev/null would be enough?

Back on /opt/crashplan/upgrade filling up the disk with failed updates whenever a new release comes out:

sudo rm -rf /opt/crashplan/upgrade/*
sudo chattr +i /opt/crashplan/upgrade

Now automatic upgrades will continue to fail but without wasting your bandwidth or disk space :) Everything else continues to work perfectly including upgrading via AUR (you'll get a warning on upgrade that it can't remove this directory, that's ok).

Don't forget that you did this though in case you ever stop using the AUR package and install crashplan by hand. You can undo the immutability with chattr -i.

Maybe this should be part of the AUR package? A package setting immutability really isn't great but is infinitely better than the current situation.

Looks like upgrading all the pending arch packages via pacman has fixed the issue. The CrashPlanDesktop app is opening up now. Might have been an issue with a linked library version.

I did try the earlier PKGBUILD, but crashplan have removed the older tgz from their server. Also I don't have any issue running the crashplan (java) service. I am seeing the segfault when I start the CrashPlanDesktop electron app.

If any one else still has the older tgz and can share, that would greatly help as well

@gotunandan: You can checkout the git repo for this aur package and then checkout older versions of the PKGBUILD, if you want to try the previous version. Assuming it can still be downloaded at the same url on Crashplan's side of things.

I've got two hosts running the latest version now, they upgraded fine from the previous. I know it doesn't help, but at least you know it should work.

Make sure your java -version is pointed at the right one. Maybe try a re-build and re-install of the package, in case something went wrong? :/

The CrashPlanDesktop app for version 6.8.2 is immediately segfaulting on launch :(

I cannot revert back to 6.7.x either as their 'Downloads' page no longer lists that version. I tried downloading the earlier PKGBUILD but found that the earlier version has apparently been removed from their server too.

I'm stuck with a 'paused' backup that will not resume from their web administration console either :( I've created support ticket with code42 about this, but any help here would be appreciated too

Looks like the new version has a gtk3 dependency.

I swear I was a co-maintainer for this AUR package, but I guess not. Have a PKGBUILD all ready to go, but can't push it. :(

@evantatarka put this URL in the out-of-date flag:

You can download the snapshot and change the first part of PKGBUILD to this one:
