Further tweaked the PKGBUILD to make it more robust.

I was using pacaur, but I've been able to do it manually now by creating a new directory. Thanks!

Are you building in an empty directory? I can only recreate your error if I run makepkg a second time in a directory where I've already run makepkg before.

i.e. I download the snapshot to an empty directory, extract, makepkg, and it builds fine. If I then run makepkg *again* (with the -f switch to ignore the already-built package, or after having deleted the package file, I tried both) I get exactly your error.

For me, makepkg fails with the following error:

-> Extracting with bsdtar
epubcheck-4.0.1/: Can't replace existing directory with non-directory
epubcheck-4.0.1/lib/: Can't replace existing directory with non-directory
epubcheck-4.0.1/licenses/: Can't replace existing directory with non-directory
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

@hlzr Have updated the launcher to explicitly call bash.

I've also tried to bring PKGBUILD more into line with Arch standards for Java packaging as here:

Not sure I fully understand the recommendations, but its a first step.

Can you please modify the launcher (/usr/bin/epubcheck) to contain a #!/bin/bash for us fish users? :)
