Is it just me or does this program just straight up not work anymore? I need to run debtap -u to do anything but doing so just gives me a ton of "Malformed input to a URL function" errors and fails.

The latest version of pacman utility makepkg knows how to handle Debian packages. For instance the aur package protonmail-bridge-bin PKGBUILD script handles the Debian source very easily.

source=("https://protonmail.com/download/bridge/protonmail-   bridge_${pkgver}-${_pkgrel}_amd64.deb"
    "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ProtonMail/proton-bridge/master/LICENSE")

...
prepare() {
    tar xf data.tar.gz
}

Most of the Debian packages are already packages in aur.

Love this little Gem.

Has anything changes between Arch and Debian based distros to warrant an updated version?

Or is the update flag sufficient to ensure a stable experience?

When I ‘sudo debtap -u’,it is very slow when downloading.

Hi ! Tried to convert megasync-Debian_9.0_i386.deb (Downloaded from https://mega.io/desktop) without success. Pacman asks for unsolvable "apt" dependency in converted package.
