you use the latest checkout from a git repository.

So, according to the ↗ VCS package guidelines, you must rename your package to pacgui-git (i.e. with the -git) suffix.

Please do so (upload new package and file a merge request for the old package), and provide appropriate conflicts and provides entries in the PKGBUILD of the renamed package.

Thanks for maintaining!,

@Andy_Vetrov, it was a design decision to not ask for credentials, have a look at:

Thank you for a great idea S Gar! But can you change, because password promt not work correctly at this time?

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        echo "Upgrade st#!/bin/bash

pacman_error () {
zenity --error --text="Error: $1"
killall zenity

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then

    zenity --info --width=400\
          --text="Packages to update:\n$(echo "$updates" | awk '{if(FNR <= 10) {print $1} }')"

    zenity --question \
    --text="Do yout want to continue with the updates?" --width=400

    if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        echo "Upgrade started!"
            PASSWD="$(zenity --password --title=Authentication)\n"
            echo "10" ; sleep 1
            echo "# Sync Databases" 
            echo "30" ; echo -e $PASSWD | nice -15 sudo -S pacman -Syy --noconfirm || pacman_error "Sync"
            echo "# Downloading Packages" ; sleep 1
            echo "60" ; nice -15 sudo -S pacman -Syw --noconfirm || pacman_error "Download"
            echo "# Installing updates" ; sleep 1
            echo "80" ; nice -15 sudo -S pacman -Syu --noconfirm || pacman_error "Update"
            echo "# Finished with the updates"
            echo "100"
        ) |
        zenity --progress \
          --title="System Update" \
          --text="Databases will be updated …" \
          --percentage=0 --width=400 || pacman_error

    elif [ $? -eq 1 ]; then
        echo "Upgrades stopped!"
        echo "An unexpected error was encountered."

    zenity --info --text="No updates available." --width=400 

This variant works flawless for me.
