Just a hint, might add which as a dependency for the build. If not installed the build will fail (used in the makefile; PIKAMAN := $(shell which python) ./maintenance_scripts/

I solved the following issue by replacing pacman-git with the official pacman package. Obvious in retrospect but took me a while to figure out:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pikaur", line 6, in <module>
    from pikaur.main import main
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pikaur/", line 17, in <module>
    import pyalpm
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I updated pikaur, It conflict about python when I symlink python to ~/bin/ I development about Android, It need symlink to build Android N or more older versions.

Please check about that. IDK why it is conflict. So I changed name about that symlink, Build is okay.

@actionless: you got to the spot. I reinstalled pyalpm and then it seems I got pikaur back on track.

@TheSaint, looks legit, mb the problem is with pyalpm

@actionless, the result is on pastebin (for a short period, that's their policy for a free usage)

@TheSaint pacman -Ql pikaur?

@LMBernardo I still repeat the operation but it doesn't make any improvement. Thus I installed pacaur. Even by pacaur help the pikaur fails again and again. $ pythonPython 3.9.1 (default, Dec 13 2020, 11:55:53) `[GCC 10.2.0] on linux
