Understood, perfect! Thank you very much for the information about the wiki entry, which I wasn't aware of and did not search for it I must admit. Perhaps leave a sticky note in the comment list where you refer directly to the wiki article if someone else discovers your work.

Thanks for the appreciation. The software installation and update are indeed somewhat troublesome as it is installed by their own installer. I wrote an article about it on the ArchWiki. There, you will find everything you need to know.

Let me say thank you for providing this package! makepkg proceeds and erpnext is working normally after starting, but there are issues if erpnext is already installed and another makepkg is performing:

How is an update of this package supposed to happen without having to delete the database and/or src directory?
