@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 Working perfectly. Thanks a lot!

@Liquen @FrederickZh @thiagowfx @cfr42 I've included the suggested patch for this new release, please let me know if that works as expected.

@frealgagu Any chance of considering FrederickZh's patch?

I just learned that python-gobject is a dependency. If it isn't installed, you get this:

Starting Dropbox...Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/dropbox-cli", line 1450, in start
  File "/usr/bin/dropbox-cli", line 295, in download
    gi.require_version('Gdk', '3.0')
AttributeError: module 'gi' has no attribute 'require_version'

After installing python-gobject, dropbox-cli works just fine.

@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.

the file 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 I think your helper didn't redownload the file and you have an outdated version of it.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... ... 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
