Have issues installing: error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) i3blocks-git: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)

I had to modify the PKGBUILD like this in order to successfully install this package:

build () {
  cd "$_pkgname"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib

package () {
  cd "$_pkgname"
  mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/"
  cp bash-completion "$pkgdir/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/"
  make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

Installation fails otherwise, complaining about not finding the bash-completion file where it should be. The way I hanlded it is probably not how it should be done but I couldn't figure out the root of the problem.

I'm having a build error of mv: cannot stat 'bash-completion': No such file or directory even though I do have bash-completion

FYI: when I built this today (though I ended up not using i3blocks at all), it put the executable in /usr/local/bin/ and didn't seem to place any of the library of blocks anywhere.

ruby-ronn should be dropped as a dependency; it was replaced with pandoc a while back. See:

Thank you for the heads up! Updating the package

colors.patch is not needed since it got merged.

Added bc and lm_sensors from the i3blocks package!

I feel like `bc` should be listed in optdepends (for the default bandwidth script). It's there in the main i3blocks package, but not this one.

Without it the script will still run, but values above the KB range will only display "M" instead of "3.2M".

As I mentioned before, I think you had it just right, before the last revert.
The dir path change is really only due to the previous packager whom had used /usr/libexec/i3blocks/ "erroneously".
And the warnings included in our comments here are probably enough.
I think undoing the last revert + color patch are the key issues.
