@RubenKelevra: I have been maintaining my private PKGBUILD for this package, as I don't like the way it is packaged in /usr/share/webapps and how it is forcefully deleting files during .install and still leaves random files behind in its install directory after removal.
I found a way to facilitate systemd's DynamicUser (with StateDirectory since systemd>235) to create a static version of this package, that doesn't call (and by proxy constantly [1], which means, it doesn't create files unaccounted for (with the downside, that you can also not install plugins so easily).
For security and practicality reasons I'd like you to consider the attached PKGBUILD, which could be a good starting point to fix some issue with yours.

Update 1.6.1 is out, package was just updated. Merry x-mas :)

Good news, etherpad-lite is close to a new fixing release 1.6.1 which makes the issues obsolete :)

I'm sorry this package is currently not possible to build or run with all updates installed. You would need to downgrade nodejs and the dependency icu, which then breaks Pacman.

I've added a ticket to the project, until this bug is not fixed, I cannot provide a solution.

If somebody has another solution I would be grateful!

For sudo -u etherpad /usr/share/webapps/etherpad-lite/bin/ I'll get following errors and etherpad doesn't start up.

Just to be clear, on this update, the warnings might still appear, because the checks are done previously before upgrading.

npm returns so many warnings during installation:
