Made an issue on git:

Ok in that case you'll need to use instawow through pip for the moment as it is not compatible with aiohttp 3.7.3

Another option I did was add aiohttp to the ignore list of pacman as I have nothing else using it.

Perhaps logging it in git might help as well however I think the dev is using ubuntu.

that works for letting me install instawow (downgrading python-aiohttp to 3.6.2) but breaks other stuff because other scripts need python-aiohttp in the newest version 3.7.x. Applying Arch updates also gives: error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing python-aiohttp (3.7.3-1) breaks dependency 'python-aiohttp<3.7.0' required by instawow

Meaning installing instawow that way basically breaks Arch updates.

Hello BS86, this is due to the upgrade of python to 3.9 on Arch.

What worked for me was the following:

sudo pacman -Rns python-aiohttp-gns3 python-multidict-gns3 python-async-timeout-gns3
yay -S python-loguru
sudo pacman -Rns instawow
yay -S python-aiohttp
yay -S downgrade
sudo downgrade python-aiohttp
yay -S python-aresponses
yay -S instawow

Let me know if this helped.

PS: There is also a new version now where it states those packages as conflicting.

I am getting those errors upon updating: Package conflicts found: -> Installing python-aiohttp-gns3 will remove: python-aiohttp -> Installing python-multidict-gns3 will remove: python-multidict -> Installing python-async-timeout-gns3 will remove: python-async-timeout -> Conflicting packages will have to be confirmed manually

When resolving those dependencies, the installation fails to satisfy dependencies: ==> Missing dependencies: -> python-aiohttp>=3.1.0

@BS86: yes it is as this uses the source from pypi as requested by the developer and this one does not include the GUI. The GUI is only available as a binary on Github directly. I suppose this could be packaged separately though if someone would need it and would be willing to maintain it.

Is it intentional that the GUI is not present when using this package?

The CLI works fine and is enough, but it would be great to be able to test the GUI ;)
