Package works, but utilizing dget is missing some key files. This makes you have to untar files yourself. This is ok, but for automated scripts, annoying, especially for backporting packages with multiple bz2 archives. dget also applies patches. Keyrings from /debian-archive-keyring are installed to /usr/share/keyrings, which is not recognized by dscverify.

Error using dget:

dpkg-vendor: error: vendor default doesn't exist in /etc/dpkg/origins/
dscverify: can't find any system keyrings On my Debian VPS, this is the contents of the origins/ folder:

Ok, it seems that replacing pkgver=1.17.27 in the header fixes the issue.

I encountered that issue today. Please update PKGBUILD. Does anyone have updated PKGBUILD already?

@ido, please update the package - the version 1.17.25 is incompatible to tar 1.29.

I have seen a recent PKGBUILD file for dpkg 1.18.4 in your git repo - could you please also update the aur package to that version?
