In the latest release of this package I've introduced a workaround to force fresh downloads whenever we bump the package release number, not just the version. This should work around most people's caching issues resulting from upstream's replacing files without changing the filename or versions.

If you hit a checksum error now please flag this package as out of date.

Have a look at the man page for PKGBUILD. Specifically, the section about split packages.

The git clone URL on this AUR package points to "font-symbola.git" so it downloads the wrong version. Manually downloading a snapshot downloads the right version of course. Why is it pointing to font-symbola.git?

@Togooroo I just re-downloaded the source and the checksum still matches. This is not out of date, but I suspect you have the same problem many other have had with this package. Because of a cooky issue with the way AUR package namespaces work there is a deleted (marked as deleted but still clonable) repository in the old namespace. This package's clone URL is different than it used to be. Please update by cloning from the URL shown in this package's meta data.

@IMBJR That package file is from a different repository. Please use the "Git Clone URL"s shown on this package and clone from scratch.

Oh wow. The PKGBUILD re-downloaded is:

pkgname=ttf-symbola pkgver=13.00 pkgrel=1 ....

That's clearly wrong. I'll have to manually download the file then.

IMBJR: You're using an old release. Update your package.

Has the ZIP file been updated since you upgraded the PKGBUILD file?

@Soptik That checksum you posted in your out of date flag is already the checksum used by this package, it hasn't changed. What has changed is the base name for the package, I suspect you are using the outdated Git repository name. I suggest a fresh clone.

@balticer I have unflagged this as it is not out of date yet. You have the same issue noted in a few previous comments here. The output you posted with your flag shows that you have the wrong git repository checked out. Note the package base name has changed and you seem to be cloning the old repository. Please update and build from this package.

@caleb, thanks. You're right, the package / repo listed here is fine.

I was working with the ttf-symbola repo which I've had on my system for some time, and shows this AUR page as well. I did not realize I probably missed an update about this. Switched to the font-symbola, no issue anymore.
