So after makepkg, the generated package will be marked as depending on a specific version of, this will break future upgrade process of x265. When you want to upgrade x265 in the future, you need to rebuild this package, is there any way to trigger the rebuilding automatically? (Just like what dkms do when kernel get upgraded.)

Clean building it did the trick. Thanks @jshap and sorry for my unawareness (I should have just read the other comments)

that this package is not out of date, you just need to remove and then clean build it.

@D3SOX is correct, this package is broken and prevents updating the system due to this error:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing x265 (3.3-1) breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg-compat-57

Doesn't work with the latest version of x265

@anon54163 To closer inspect (thus avoiding the described "importing random keys" trust of the terminal print) you can inspect the PKGBUILD. By doing so you will observe that the B4322F04D67658D8 key is in fact listed as the "validpgpkeys" and has been at least since the initial commit in 2018. Therefor they match.

For the current commit:

and the initital commit from 2018

There is an error when validating ffmpeg-3.4.2.tar.xz. The PGP signature cannot be verified. I know I can import the key myself, but I'm not too comfortable importing random keys. This should ultimately not be necessary, like with other AUR packages.

I got the error regarding the x265 package, but I noticed I was trying to install ffmpeg-compat-57 from a different repo (chaotic-aur) instead of installing it from the AUR. Hope this helps someone.

@E3LDDfrK I'm not sure exactly why that error pops up, but rebuilding ffmpeg-compat-57 solves the problem. looking at the pkgbuild and deps, ffmpeg- doesn't explicitly require, I think that's some leftover fluff from a previous release of this package.

@fabiocorbo Added an upstream patch to fix the compiler errors you mentioned.

ALso got this error:

installing x265 (3.2-1) breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg-compat-57

The solution was just uninstall ffmpeg-compat-57 and reinstall it.

But any idea what I did wrong originally? I almost always installed packages with an AUR helper called pikaur. Never had the error before.
