Evidently, you have a corrupt copy of freefilesync-bin-10.9.tar.gz cached. Can you please remove it, retry installation and report whether it succeeds?

What exactly causes the failure? Can you please provide more output?

I improved the download strategy by adding the necessary authentication request prior to the download step. It should work now.

Apparently, I found a solution for the download issue leading to the checksum verification failure.

The cause for downloading not the real tarball is that sometimes does not redirect to the actual location of the tar.gz file, but instead back to the general download page. Since this page is not the intended file, checksum verification fails.

The solution is to request the file using the proper Referer header (as in a normal browser session). I updated the curl command accordingly, and it seems to finally solve the problem.

Evidently the URL used so far has been removed. Therefore I changed it back to the suggested URL which had already been used before.

The url currently used to build is not valid :

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

Using following url in the PKGBUILD fixes the error for me:

source=( "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::=${pkgver}_Linux.tar.gz" FreeFileSync.desktop FreeFileSync.png RealTimeSync.desktop RealTimeSync.png )
