@XZS please use my linked PKGBUILD to update this package, thanks.

For those of you who don't have time to help fix PKGBUILD with new build system, you can revert to release 2.8 (the last release before the introduction of meson).

And as the pull request was just merged, this extension can now be used on gnome-shell 3.22 without any hiccups.

Yes, the extension is not yet declared compatible with the newest gnome-shell version, but there is a pull request pending: As soon as it is merged, reinstalling this package will work. If meanwhile you cannot wait to try extensions in a future version, you may follow the directions I gave here:

Just a note that this package doesn't currently build as-is, the logic to detect the Gnome Shell version is wanting a version less than 3.21.

An extension compatible to current shell version should drop the upper version bound as it is likely to be compatible with coming updates. The lines from the PKGBUILD you mention were actually intended to do exactly this, but fail to do so. I already spotted the bug to blame and will fix it soon. In the same course, I will try to get things rolling towards 3.20 updates to all of my gnome-shell-extension packages about next week.

If you do not want to postpone an update, you can switch compatibility checks off with the -d flag, so "pacman -Syud" will update ignoring incompatibilities. Nonetheless, as the extension itself does not declare compatible with shell 3.20, it will not work. This is what the package dependencies actually reflect.
