the defect is not possible anymore as the EULA was included into the package itself

These are the steps I used to upgrade with the eula.html error, in case this helps anyone.

Get the hash:

yay -G foxitreader (or use another method to download the AUR package)
cd foxitreader
sha256 eula.html

As of this comment, it is 4ca287e0c47f46df4185be7ff273c0cced304672ebc750aad6236590e1a772e6.

Replace the second sha256 hash (currently line 21) in the PKGBUILD file in this folder with the hash that you found above.

Then, run makepkg -si to install.

this is becoming so irritating. The Foxit website keeps changing the EULA for some reasons, unknown to me. It just changed three times today.

Therefore I'm incorporating the license file in the source package

It should be fixed once and forever.

The suggestions here are not working for me, so I uninstalled foxitreader,

yay -R foxitreader

.... and cloned the repo:

$ git clone
$ cd foxitreader/
$ makepkg -si
  eula.html ... FAILED
$ sha256sum eula.html
  467cc4b897c7e5158592d442937ea4a3cef36092a81ba7d82da04ddf5c5a47be  eula.html
  ... ## changed 2nd checksum per code above [467 ... 47be] and comments below
$ makepkg -si
  ... ## success


Thanks to @Muflone, this now also updates in yay. I needed to manually delete eula.html from ~/.cache/yay/foxitreader/, but thereafter my normal yay -Syu update process appeared to update that foxitreader installation via @Muflone's updated code. :-)

So, while I installed from git (detailed above), I believe the normal install from AUR should now run without issue. :-D

Many thanks to @Muflone for addressing this eula.html annoyance; much appreciated! :-)

I also confirm @Alireza's solution works perfect. @Alireza nice mate, thx a lot.

This package is obsolete for a while Foxit doesn't even support Linux anymore.

Validating source files with sha256sums... eula.html ... FAILED

Please update.

jerry73204 commented on 2019-11-26 08:29

The digest of eula.html is altered again. Please update thanks.

persianblue commented on 2019-10-20 15:38

it was just like you said @Alireza. I replaced the sha256sum of the eula.html with the provided checksum in PKGBUILD and the installation proceeded nicely.:) thanx mate
