This PKGBUILD verifies the authenticity of the source via PGP signatures which are not part of the Arch Linux keyring. In order to complete the process it is necessary to import the key(s) from the ‘validpgpkeys’ array into the user’s keyring before calling makepkg. There is a helpful article explaining this process by one of Arch Linux's developers located here:

Instructions on importing keys from a keyserver and how to automate the retrieval process can be found in the Arch Linux wiki here: This article also contains helpful information describing the installation of GnuPG, its configuration and usage.

Execute the following to import keys using gpg:

gpg --recv-keys <KEYID - See 'validpgpkeys' array in PKGBUILD>

The PGP signature check can be skipped by passing --skippgpcheck to makepkg.

Consult the makepkg manual page for a full list of options. []

I can confirm that yan12125's PKGBUILD works well.

Regarding the issue discussed in, could you consider building from sources instead of symlinking it to Upstream says:

You cannot simply make a symbolic link to equate with

Here is modified PKGBUILD:

When running stata (the CLI interface, not xstata which is the GUI), if you get this error:

stata: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Install this package to fix it

Had to install this in December 2022 and the key is expired. Can get a new key with:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 19882D92DDA4C400C22C0D56CC2AF4472167BE03

"$ gpg --recv-keys <KEYID>" does not work.

As mentioned by user "iordendev" on the comment section for the proper solution is doing the following below:

Go to

Then, save the recent "PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK" into a file with extension ".asc"

Lastly import the ".asc" PGP public key block: $ gpg --import privkey.asc

Doing "makepkg" again will now accept the keyid provided in the PKGBUILD.
