You need to add the following dependency

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pathlib>=1.0' distribution was not found and is required by FlexGet

Add python2-pathlib as a dependency to fix it.

This has nothing to do with this package. You are using some AUR manager that auto-installs dependencies, and you had a problem with python-tzlocal. Even this problem is probably transient, because I had no problem running:

git clone

I updated the package to 2.10.48 and applied your fix for the dependency on guessit.
It seems to work, hoping that using this version of guessit will not create too many bugs... but I guess it will still be better than not being able to install it at all :)

Also, if porting to python (python3), then the patch for requirements.txt should be modified to remove dep on pahtlib:

Well, the owner could apply:

The guys from flexget have accepted and rejected it... People from gentoo indicates compiles and works. There's also a indication of 3 tests failing...

I suggest applying the changes so the flexget keeps working on Arch, but also keep track of:

I seen no reason either not to move to python, rather than keep using python2...

Install fails with:

error: target not found: python2-guessit<=2.0.4

@redbaron i just re-read the comment, maybe you can report that to them on their site? open a new issue and report that.

highway commented on 2016-09-01 02:24

@redbaron there is an issue open with guessit in their github. you can comment to show support/urgency if you like. the issue is with dateutil functionality breaking guessit tests that might get removed.
