For unknown reasons, creation of the directories

/opt/.cache/yay/electron9/src/src/third_party/electron_node
/opt/.cache/yay/electron9/src/src/third_party/nan

fails, causing the build to abort:

  File "/usr/lib/python3.10/shutil.py", line 434, in copy2
    copyfile(src, dst, follow_symlinks=follow_symlinks)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.10/shutil.py", line 254, in copyfile
    with open(src, 'rb') as fsrc:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/opt/.cache/yay/electron9/src/src/third_party/electron_node'

FWIW I ended up switching to the electron9-bin package.

If installation of this package fails, subsequent installs will also fail because the src dir exists already:

fatal: destination path 'src' already exists and is not an empty directory.

Deleting the ~/.cache/pacaur/electron9/src dir allows the subsequent installation to proceed, but requires that the sources by fetched again (which is not a quick operation).

I was getting the error:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'httplib2'

I was able to fix this by:

pip uninstall httplib2
pip install httplib2

And then installing electron9 again.

This package does not build. Apparently, it is not fully compatible with python 3.10.4.

 -> error making: electron9

Fix for this error appears to be editing line 13 in /opt/.cache/yay/electron9/src/src/third_party/jinja2/tests.py as follows:

from collections.abc import Mapping

However, the build then stops with another Python related error:

Unfortunately, I have no clue how to fix this one.
