I saw a similar issue to @SirNiczeK and @nrw when trying to update with aura:

aura >>= Building hplip-plugin... aura >>= Well, building hplip-plugin failed. aura >>= Dumping makepkg output in 3.. 2.. 1.. ==> Making package: hplip-plugin 3.19.1-1 (Sat 16 Mar 2019 10:55:31 AM EDT) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... -> Downloading % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 10.9M 100 10.9M 0 0 2479k 0 0:00:04 0:00:04 --:--:-- 2479k ==> Validating source files with md5sums... ...

I had no problems installing the package manually though - probably a bug in aura.

@ron2138, and @SirNiczeK, I'm not sure if it is the case, but which distro are you using? For instance, the Manjaro packages are slightly delayed with respect to Arch. For the hplip-plugin package it leads to occasional inconsistency with the versions. Since the AUR plugin follows the version the hplip package in Arch, it happens that the Manjaro package is outdated and one cannot update the plugin. You have to wait for the Manjaro hplip package to be updated.

Refering to @SirNiczeK comment from 2019-02-01 08:34, and @nrw comment from 2019-01-01 06:30:

Have you solved it? It could be the problem is specific to your environment because I believe it works for most users.

Yes. Please add "epoch=1" to the PKGBUILD, then I will remove my patched hplip AUR package.

RemoteAdmin commented on 2018-08-20 14:37

@andmars Thanks, but downgrading is not the best of options. Consider that there are people who already compiled and installed the package and now won't get the update.

It probably would have been better to change the version to the same of hplip (1:3.18.6-1) to make sure that the update is distributed to everyone

Manjaro is a supported distro. Test on that.

I have added a patched version of hplip on the AUR (and will make the binary available in archlinuxcn). This solves the current "Filter failed" issue by removing use of the new libImageProcessor which was conflicting with this plugin. I filed an upstream bug, but doesn't look like they will take it seriously because Arch Linux is not supported and they think it works on supported distros.

Here's the working patched version on AUR:

This AUR package just provides a PKGBUILD with links to the sources, including the patch that fixes it from @loqs in comments to the Arch linux bug:

Thanks @andmars. I was planning to post in the forum, but I was trying to find some information about the bug first. But since you have posted already, I'll just wait for the next version. For now, I've downgraded to the 3.18.6 hplip version and installed the driver manually.
