If you used yay and encountered the following error:

==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: 

clean yay's cached data and redo the upgrade (by either removing ~/.cache/yay/fwupd-git or executing yay -Scc).

This is caused by that the upstream just changed the branch name from master to main.

@thx1138 It seems fwupd relies on pkg-config to find dependencies. However, flashrom-git does not install the corresponding pkg-config file to the system, so fwupd-git cannot find it.

(The official flashrom does install a pkg-config file, so there's no issue using the official flashrom.)

I think the proper solution should be asking the maintainer of flashrom-git to install the pkg-config file.

Fails to recognize "flashrom-git".

flashrom-git does have:

 Provides        : flashrom

but fwupd-git fails to recognize the package:

Run-time dependency flashrom found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)
Looking for a fallback subproject for the dependency flashrom

fwupd-git/ ERROR: Automatic wrap-based subproject downloading is disabled

Needs a dependency on gi-docgen

Looks like a new dependency is required:

Run-time dependency fwupd-efi found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake) Looking for a fallback subproject for the dependency fwupd-efi

We build in chroots, but the host is a KVM VM. Is the test trying to do something "potentially evil" like accessing /dev/mem or privio?

Working on a fix now.

PedroHLC commented on 2020-03-25 00:26 (UTC)

Run-time dependency jcat found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)

It seems there is a new dependency required.

@Slaxor, how are you applying this patch? Every time that I try it, I am getting an error about only garbage being found in the patch.

this got it working:
