@bidulock, please remove _perl_depends from PKGBUILD. This is a wrong approach, AUR packages should not block system updates.

@bidulock You don't understand that you can't update the perl to 5.30 if hivex is installed on system thus rebuilding hivex is pointless (and this commit was pointless too https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=hivex&id=84595b1331e0)? You have to remove hivex first, update perl then build hivex again which sucks and that's why you should remove that code from PKGBUILD.

Also pacman -Syu --assume-installed perl=xxx isn't solution. The broken deps belong to maintainer to fix not the user.

We had exactly same situation year ago and people told you what to do which was ignored. That code was removed from the template that you originally copied from because it was bad idea. If you don't want to maintain this package properly then orphan it and someone else will do the job.

Rebuild the package against a current system.

Please remove "_perl_depends" from PKGBUILD. It does more harm than good. AUR packages shouldn't block system update ever.

:: installing perl (5.30.0-2) breaks dependency 'perl<5.29' required by hivex

building version 1.3.18 from http://libguestfs.org/download/hivex/ sha256sums=('8a1e788fd9ea9b6e8a99705ebd0ff8a65b1bdee28e319c89c4a965430d0a7445') just working for me here.

Would it be possible to upgrade the bindings to Python3?

You need to rebuild the package against the new perl version. The dependency is generated to record the version of perl used when building the package. So either upgrade with pacman -Syu --assume-installed perl=5.26.0 (I hope that syntax is right) or remove the package before upgrading. Then rebuild this package once you've upgraded.

@Maintainer: The template that adds this dependency has been removed in the new perl package. I suggest that you also remove its usage from this PKGBUILD even though strictly speaking what it does is correct.

What is the reason for having versioned deps on perl!? pacman has a hook for reminding people to rebuild perl packages. This is preventing a system update as perl has been updated to 5.28
