If you're running into this error during full system upgrade:

installing clang (17.0.6-2) breaks dependency 'clang=16.0.6' required by shiboken6

The fix is to upgrade clang and shiboken6 in isolation first, to manually resolve the dependency chain.

pacman -Sy clang shiboken6

Then your full system upgrade will resolve and proceed.

@Kirtai new python-pillow update has just dropped. That update fixes it for me

Latest update gives this error.

Yes, python-pillow and libimagequant are up to date.

@polpoman, the avif thing will just need installing as any other package, however there is currently no AUR package for it unfortunately.

The PDF thing is apparently part of qt6-webengine, so you may need to install that first. I'll put it in the opt-deps.

Also is this a normal error? Is there a way to make the import work?

v544, 2023/09/21 15:14:32: If this information helps, QtPdf failed to import because:

Hydrus gives me this message, when importing avif files.

"Sorry, you need the pillow-heif library to support this filetype (avif)! Please rebuild your venv."

How do I do that? I have downloaded the from the project github, but where should I execute it? I can't find the venv folder that the AUR install uses.

Since missing offline docs now no longer triggers any serious issues with the context help system, I've removed the hard dependency on doc files of some sort being present in the hydrus directory and as a consequence have deprecated the dummy docs package. So don't worry about that going: the hydrus and hydrus-docs packages are now separate from each other and the default experience the average user gets if they forget to install the docs is acceptable and no longer simply looks like a bug in hydrus or the package.
