I modified the current files with Larivact's suggestions (except 4.) and did some other minor changes:

@RoestVrijStaal:
Fedora should be more up-to-date than RHEL or CentOS. RHEL 7 doesn't support 32-bit installations by the way.

Some suggestions:
1) Change the Upstream URL to https://www.tenable.com/products/nessus-vulnerability-scanner as https://www.nessus.org appears to be down.
2) Change the description to: "A proprietary vulnerability scanner available free of charge for personal use."
3) Since the curl to fetch the token is silent, echo "fetching token" before invoking _gettoken, so that users aren't confused if the site takes to load.
4) post_install should mention /opt/nessus/sbin/nessuscli
5) post_remove should echo "You might want to remove the remaining files in /opt/nessus/."

Why is the Fedora RPM used? It lacks a i386 build, which is impractical when changing the PKGBUILD to the right architecture :/

Did anyone had a successful install by using the Red Hat ES7 / CentOS' RPM instead?

@xsmile Found and fixed the problem. Thanks for the report!

@MattWoelk: The lib directory in the package is empty and is missing the systemd service file. Thanks in advance for updating.

@xsmile, your fixes are in. Thanks again! :)

Thank you for the quick update.

Here is another PKGBUILD that adds a menu entry and has some minor corrections:
PKGBUILD: http://hastebin.com/raw/faxumukiro
nessus.desktop: http://hastebin.com/raw/pagapugabi

Automatic downloading works again.

@xsmile, your suggestions were wonderful. I implemented them all. Thank you!

@MattWoelk:

Here are some modified package components with following changes:
- automatic download of the Fedora package
- excluded nessus.install from the source file array
- nessus.install now contains most of the control commands from the Debian package
- LICENSE file updated

LICENSE: http://hastebin.com/raw/burepavoxu
nessus.install: http://hastebin.com/raw/zeleyilivo
PKGBUILD: http://hastebin.com/raw/yokoqixope

nessuscli works correctly now and there is no need to manually extract the tools archive.

Downloading is manual for now, as the old way of getting the ID for the download is broken due to an upstream change.
