The description for python-ipaddress reads “Python 3.3's ipaddress for older Python versions”. The ipaddress module is already there in Python3. Please remove the dependency.

Thank you for reverting it to python3 only, @stormdragon2976!

@nac: I changed the package back to a single version using python3. The python2 version never worked right anyway, and other people have had trouble with it too. Hopefully this will work better. Now it's back to being "magic-wormhole" like it started life as in the first place.

Trying to install this package results in:

loading packages...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: python2-magic-wormhole and python-magic-wormhole are in conflict

I'm not sure where python2-magic-wormhole is coming from.

@rafaelff: Thanks, that should be fixed now.

in function package_python2-magic-wormhole (), PKGBUILD is set to enter:

     cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"

when should be

     cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"-py2

I am not able to reproduce the problems, except, trying to install it as a group would cause a conflict because they both provide the same "wormhole" command. I have submitted a request for help on the PKGBUILD to the AUR list. Hopefully we can get this resolved soon. I apologize for any inconvenience. If you don't mind running git packages, magic-wormhole-git is python3 only, and should work without issue.

I concur with trickyelf and aurelieng. Using yay, there were errors building the python 2 version when using magic-wormhole and python-magic-wormhole. Upon editing the pkgbuild and removing everything associated with "python2" the process was able to complete sucessfully.

How do I specify to install only python-magic-wormhole with makepkg? I have not used groups before and didn't see them mentioned in the makepkg man page.

I have also tried to install python-magic-wormhole with yay and it errors as aurelieng mentioned.

Maybe it makes sense for the py2/3 packages to be entirely separate instead of a group so that it is more installable?

@trickyelf: I'm surprised it is saying that python and python2 version conflict each other. They should not be doing that. Unless you have a specific reason to install the python2 version, maybe just try python-magic-wormhole instead of the whole group. The reason it is in a split package is some other packages like taholafs depends on python2-magic-wormhole.
