Thanks. I've created an issue here:

It seems that packer-git requires expac.

/usr/bin/packer: line 537: expac: command not found

In the original version of packer "packer --quickcheck --auronly" would list all AUR packages which might need to be updated. However --auronly no longer exists as an option in this version and "packer --quickcheck --aur" seems to list all the packages installed from AUR.

Is there a way in this version to list the AUR packages which may need to be updated?

I almost forgot: nevermind. I had an issue with the HTTPS_PROXY shell environment variable propagating to different parts of the script. It works great, now that I've figured that out.

@nixscripter, if you have an account on GitHub, could you please fill an issue on ?

Anyway, I ran it like in your example, but it worked without any issues. What I noticed though is a quite different output of bash -x, so maybe you're not using the latest packer version (do not update, but uninstall and then manually build the packer package and first then install this manually built package)? Another idea simply is, that packer is using already downloaded file which got corrupted for some reason, so you might remove the /tmp/packerbuild... directory.

No matter what I try to fetch, it says "not in gzip format." It's because it seems to be fetching the homepage instead of my package.

$ bash -x packer -S ttf-ms-fonts
+ [[ -r /home/admin/.makepkg.conf ]]
+ . /tmp/packerbuild-1000/ttf-ms-fonts/ttf-ms-fonts/PKGBUILD
+ [[ -d /tmp/packerbuild-1000/ttf-ms-fonts ]]
+ rm -rf /tmp/packerbuild-1000/ttf-ms-fonts
+ mkdir -p /tmp/packerbuild-1000/ttf-ms-fonts
+ cd /tmp/packerbuild-1000/ttf-ms-fonts
++ pkglink ttf-ms-fonts
++ rpcinfo ttf-ms-fonts
++ [[ -f /tmp/packertmp-1000/ ]]
+++ jshon -Q -e results -a -e URLPath -u
++ echo
+ curl -Lfs
+ mkdir ttf-ms-fonts
+ tar xf ttf-ms-fonts.tar.gz -C ttf-ms-fonts --strip-components=1

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

And yet, the actual jshon command on line 266 results in something valid when manually run, it works:

$ jshon -Q -e results -a -e URLPath -u < /tmp/packertmp-1000/

Is anyone else seeing this?

@gavinhungry thanks for spotting it. Hopefully fixed now ;)

@dumblob: You forgot mksrcinfo - PKGBUILD says 302, .SRCINFO says 292.

I've forgotten to do that almost every time I've pushed an update to AUR4. Need a git hook. :)

@gavinhungry, version bumped. Thanks for adding the AUR4 support.
