The package requires the commands hostname and inotifywait, which are provided by the packages inotify-tools and inetutils

It can do both. It's right there in the helptext...

maldet --help|grep update -A1
-u, --update-sigs [--force]
   Update malware detection signatures from

-- -d, --update-ver [--force] Update the installed version from

it can update itself.

AFAIK it can only update malware signatures. It can't update itself or bump its own version. One of the most important changes I care about is that maldet can now send Slack alerts which is quite handy in enterprise environments.

To be fair, once maldet is installed, it can update itself. This is just handy for getting it setup in a way that it can be easily removed from the system.

It's almost a year out of date

The linking folders and PATH setting is the problem in the PKGBUILD in your pkgbuild its looking for a tmp folder that is not there in where pkgbuild installed maldet to /usr/share/maldet , and cant download to the folder why dont you just install the maldet package using the install file from the git repo and let the install file set the directorys ## git repo working maldet -d Linux Malware Detect v1.6.2 (C) 2002-2017, R-fx Networks <> (C) 2017, Ryan MacDonald <> This program may be freely redistributed under the terms of the GNU GPL v2 maldet(5780): {update} checking for available updates... maldet(5780): {update} hashing install files and checking against server... maldet(5780): {update} latest version already installed.

I've installed maldet from github and it works fine Its as you said the PKGBUILD has a problem I'll look into trying to fix the problem with the PKGBUILD

@vendforce: there are two errors: • line 1844: the "too many arguments" leads me to think maybe the folder contains more than one file, so the expansion produces one more argument. badly written if this can happen • line 1850: it calls $inspath/maldet, which is very hard to debug without looking at all the inner workings of this software. quite surely is a following error from the first, where changing directories failed. looking at these errors I realize there is no way I'll debug this. Ever. Discouraging everyone from using and deowning…
