@cfr42 the version in filename is in order to avoid issues once the file is downloaded, if a new version arrives makepkg does not try to re-download it if the file has the same name and it already exists. If the checksum fails then it means that there is a new version and it's necessary to change the PKGBUILD information.

Please flag it if that happens.

@frealgagu I'm using aurutils. The command I run almost every day is:

aur sync -u --no-confirm --no-view

@miguelmsoler What AUR helper are you using? The checksum you suggest is the previous version of the file, but it was recently changed.

https://linux.dropbox.com/packages/

the file dropbox.py was modified in July 10th. I think your helper didn't redownload the file and you have an outdated version of it.

Hi, I just tried to update and got this error:

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... dropbox-cli-2020.03.04.py ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I fixed it after changing sha256sum to e34817eb1949308054ec79454ff77062037526e69ba56957aac37aeadc796e89 in PKGBUILD.

Is it worth the effort to patch this CLI tool somewhat like @thiagowfx suggested so that dropbox-cli version can work with https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dropbox/?

@ahnafalrafi no, if you download the file https://linux.dropbox.com/packages/dropbox.py you will notice that the script is for version 2019.02.14 so the version of file is not for upload date else for version that appears into the file.

ahnafalrafi commented on 2019-09-09 19:31

The dropbox.py file seems to have been updated here: https://linux.dropbox.com/packages/

The last update date there is 18-Jun-2019

@frealgagu Thanks for maintaining this package. As I found the package flagged out-of-date, I updated PKGBUILD and published it on my GitHub repository along with build configuration tweaks. https://github.com/ymkjp/aur-dropbox-cli/commit/6902509a6516aa4304bf006cd54e84bdf5f03717 Hope you see this patch is helpful.
