@ainola Thanks for the reply, I've made a few tests, and think it's related to libarchive. I'm using 3.2.2 (testing) and it works with 3.2.1.
I'm reporting the issue there, but in case anyone comes across this, downgrade should do the trick.

@DarkShadow44, I can't replicate this issue. Are you using an AUR helper?

If so, maybe try clearing out package cache.

Latest update fails for me with

licenses/javolution.license.TXT: Could not stat licenses/javolution.license.TXT
licenses/ Could not stat licenses/
licenses/thoughtworks.TXT: Could not stat licenses/thoughtworks.TXT
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

@MarcinWieczorek: I'm pretty late to the party. Thanks for the heads-up.

I think I may have been mistaken when I found the source code on Github. It appears that older versions may have been GPL3 but I'm unable to find any repositories or code dumps of the newer version; therefore, I'm re-licensing to "custom" and including whatever txt files they have for licenses.

Someone could go to the technic forums and inquire if this matter doesn't appear to be correct.

I'm pretty sure the license is not GPL3. If so, why don't you compile it from source?

Thanks, @Muhaha, for bringing this to my attention. It should be fixed now!

Then I try to build this package I get the following message

META-INF/: Can't replace existing directory with non-directory
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

I fixed it by adding these 5 lines to the building script

optdepends=('unzip: Needed for unpack jar-file')
prepare() {
unzip -y TechnicLauncher.jar

Lubosz: That doesn't make sense. Are there any relevant logs?

Running the launcher from the command line did not work for me!
It spawns a java process, but does not display a window. The shell is distached at "Setting up logging", and I need to kill the java instance.

It works when I launch the .desktop file from the GUI. (GNOME)

.technic/logs is how I found out it was a 401 error... sadly, nothing else was useful. I guess I'll keep poking around...
