Prior to flagging the package out-of-date or reporting build errors please:

  • Make sure that your system is up-to-date (pacman -Syu)
  • Rebuild and reinstall dependencies (especially ones from AUR)
  • Rebuild and reinstall the package

Do not expect AUR packages to trigger rebuild or suggest bumping "pkgrel" number. This is expected behaviour and the way Arch packing is designed to work.

For more information read the official documentation and man pages.

Is this package still being maintained? It seems to haven't been updated for half a year and upstream has changed the way it is built, no longer using scripts but pypa/build and pypa/installer for build and installation.

The PKGBUILD I use myself is built using the same way as upstream, and I've had no problems with it so far, here's the patch:

Requiring users to downgrade python-cryptography system wide to a year old version is a really bad idea. First, Arch doesn't support partial upgrades, second, this version is not available in the mirrors so users would have to compile it themselves, and third, this version is affected by a quite bad vulnerability.

I understand this restriction is from upstream, but it seems it's only a problem in their CI (to be confirmed).

Perhaps someone using the ssh features of mycli could confirm if it works even with the latest cryptography?

Could you remove the tests folder (/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/test/) from the package?

@enkeyz - "python-cli_helpers" is in the community repository (

Install by executing "pacman -S python-cli_helpers"

enkeyz commented on 2022-05-09 12:43 (UTC)

Can't install, because python-cli_helpers is no longer available:

File "/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/mycli/", line 1057, in get_reserved_space _, height = click.get_terminal_size() AttributeError: module 'click' has no attribute 'get_terminal_size'

This was fixed recently. See Consider replacing mycli with mycli-git available in the AUR.

Crashes on startup. Gives the following traceback:

My currently installed Python version is 3.10.4-1

Waiting for (dependency) update.
