@ibrokemypie @nathanchance Thanks for the heads-up. The other ncurses packages are no longer using the FTP server source. I've pulled in the latest changes from lib32-ncurses (6.0+20170527-1), including the new source URL.

It now appears the mirror is down, I had to revert back to the gnu.org address in order to get it to install.

ibrokemypie commented on 2017-08-07 07:39

needed the line source=(ftp://invisible-island.net/${_pkgbasename}/${_pkgbasename}-${pkgver}.tar.gz{,.asc})
as the current source is down for me

For people still having the problem, you guys can also download the key from

https://sks-keyservers.net/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x702353E0F7E48EDB

just copy the text starting from -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
and save it in a file, say 'key'

then import it using

gpg --import key

@krompus Ah yes good point, I have "keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net" in my ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf so I didn't need to pass --keyserver explicitly. I'll modify the pinned comment, thanks :)

I just tried adding the keys as mentioned below, but I got "no keyserver available". Likely something to do with my ~/.gnupg/gpg/conf but oh well.

If you get the same thing, try this:

$ gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 702353E0F7E48EDB

Thanks for the tip zephrax, I haven't encountered any problem downloading from the FTP source, but if other people encounter the same issue that can prove useful.

I'm keeping the FTP source in the PKGBUILD, at least for now, simply because this is the one used in the ncurses [1] and lib32-ncurses [2] packages.

If anyone is having problems when downloading the ncurses 6.0 sources (because the mirror is down). Try changing the PKGBUILD source line from:

source=(ftp://invisible-island.net/${_pkgbasename}/${_pkgbasename}-${pkgver}.tar.gz{,.asc})

to:

source=(http://invisible-mirror.net/archives/${_pkgbasename}/${_pkgbasename}-${pkgver}.tar.gz{,.asc})

It's an official mirror and it worked for me.
