imran27> Please open a ticket on the tracker, with complete debug output. Also, note that pacaur has been relaying on cower less and less over time. The words "use cower as a backend" aren't true anymore, although cower is still used for search and info. For ex, pacaur has not been using cower dependency solver for the past 2 years (due to some cower's limitation in specific scenarios), and it also doesn't use its download feature anymore since pacaur moved to git.

cower -u shows no upgrades but pacaur -Syu shows a ton of upgrades? I checked personally and found that all the upgrades shown by pacaur are actually false, all local packages installed from AUR were at their latest versions then why does pacaur show upgrades on AUR packages? It uses cower as backend and cower doesn't show upgrades!

imran27> No. Pacaur warns you about additional makedependencies but it isn't its job to remove them automatically. You likely want them as they are required for the next upgrade.

Can you add support for automatically uninstalling those packages that were installed as buildtime dependencies? Like what happens when we do 'makepkg -sri'

msgfmt ./po/pl.po -o $pkgdir/usr/share/locale/pt/LC_MESSAGES/pacaur.mo

should be replaced by:

msgfmt ./po/pt.po -o $pkgdir/usr/share/locale/pt/LC_MESSAGES/pacaur.mo

Please be aware that from now on, the pacaur-git package is only fully compatible with pacman 5.0.0 and expac 5 in [testing]. Cower also requires to be recompiled against the new libalpm.
If you are using pacman 4.2.1 from the stable [core] repository, please install the stable pacaur package.
Edit: The new pacman is now in [core]. That was fast... new pacaur release for everybody!

Ok, thank you :D. I was using -git because aur -> aur4 change, but all is OK now :).

analca3> If you can't deal with updating -git packages, you probably shouldn't use them. Even stable cower is newer than your cower-git version...

Also, note that pacaur and pacaur-git are at the moment the very same. I'd recommend you to switch to the stable version.
