I noticed some errors in the journal, not sure how long these have been around, could be for a while now:

Oct 14 16:34:26 tardis CrashPlanEngine[25260]: /opt/crashplan/bin/CrashPlanEngine:line 111: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (C.UTF-8): No such file or directory

Looking at the PKGBUILD, it adds the LC_ALL env var to the EnvironmentFile sourced by the unit file, but it depends on LANG being set to something other than "C". While I have a proper LANG=en_US.UTF-8 in my /etc/locale.conf, I build packages in a chroot using makechrootpkg, and it turns out my chroot had LANG=C in its /etc/locale.conf.

So, just leaving this comment here for people who experience a similar issue, in case it might help them. I was able to fix this by simply setting LANG=en_US.UTF-8 in the chroot's /etc/locale.conf.

Good catch, fixed to the package to represent that.

Can confirm. requires Java 8.

Here's what I did to get it running (on a headless server):

sudo pacman -S jre8-openjdk-headless
sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre
sudo pacman -R jre7-openjdk-headless
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart crashplan

Removing jre7 is obviously optional.

I didn't see it in the release notes, but it appears that 4.8.0 requires Java 8.

FYI.. check your backups.. just realized mine hadn't been working for 3 days because crashplan is trying to upgrade itself again. Still debugging

It's a crashplan thing, if you can figure out why it creates it, let me know.

The pid inside the file is also wrong, the correct pid is in /opt/crashplan/ It creates that pid in it's working directory by default. It wouldn't be too hard to move to a standard location. I'll test that out in a bit.

Crashplan seems to be putting it's pid into /usr instead of /run. Is that an aur thing or a Crashplan thing?

@timemaster did you manage to create a PKGBUILD that allows CrashPlan auto-update? It might be useful to post it here (or even submit it to the AUR)

I really can't explain why the checksum is failing for so many people. I still can't reproduce. It keeps failing because its doing the checksum against the bad version cached by your AUR helpers. However, how so people downloaded a bad tar ball is puzzling me.

timemaster commented on 2016-08-09 00:22

probably a permission issue. when using official crashplan install script, it install crashplan run as root and can update itself, at least what I think after today installation. I am also tired of this, because for 2 weeks the checksum on the crashplan zip file of this package failed and the current installation did not work as not updated. I
