The file extension changed. Update to ".xz" in PKGBUILD and all is well.

When trying to update from 6.6.12-1 to 6.6.14-1 I get the following error:

bsdtar: Error opening archive: Failed to open 'data.tar.zst' ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... -> error making: motivewave

I get the same error message when trying to do a fresh install. Can you please advise?

As of 12-28-22 this package doesn't build. Someone on the Endeavor blog was able to diagnose the problem:

If you look at the PKGBUILD, you will notice that the package version is 6.6.3

2022-12-28-111525_1535x483_scrot 2022-12-28-111525_1535x483_scrot 1535×483 102 KB Which is strange, because the latest version is supposed to be 6.6.12-1. That was probably the cause of those errors.

→ Found motivewave-6.6.3.deb ==> Validating source files with sha512sums… motivewave-6.6.3.deb … Passed ==> Removing existing $srcdir/ directory… ==> Extracting sources… → Extracting motivewave-6.6.3.deb with bsdtar ==> Sources are ready. motivewave-6.6.12-1: parsing pkg list… ==> Making package: motivewave 6.6.3-1 (Tue 27 Dec 2022 08:18:41 PM CST) ==> Checking runtime dependencies… ==> Checking buildtime dependencies… ==> WARNING: Using existing $srcdir/ tree ==> Removing existing $pkgdir/ directory… ==> Entering fakeroot environment… ==> Starting package()… bsdtar: Error opening archive: Failed to open ‘data.tar.xz’ ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting…

Looking at these lines, one could get some clues as to why the call to bsdtar failed. The file downloaded is motivewave-6.6.3.deb and if the contents are extracted, the data.tar.xz file probably resides in motivewave-6.6.3/ directory.

It could be that the version mismatch prevents the shell from locating the data.tar.xz file. If the shells looks in the motivewave-6.6.12/ directory instead of the motivewave-6.6.3/ directory, it probably won’t be able to find the data.tar.xz file because that directory doesn’t exist. The extracted directory is motivewave-6.6.3, not motivewave-6.6.12
