After trial and error, it appears the culprit was python2-numpy that pulled in the dependency on haskell-xcffib.

Luckily we no longer need numpy under python2 so deinstalling it got things rolling again.

pikaur was not the origin of the problem but rather the myopic PKGBUILD limitation of forcing arch=('x86_64') when the binaries are not multi-architecture permitting arch=('all'). Pity, this is not the case with ports or pkgsrc... Actually, it is a PITA for aarch64!

From my initial comment: It used to work, but what is this haskell business all of a sudden?

@risto3, so create a bug in their bugtracker, why do you asking it here

risto3 commented on 2020-07-13 12:13

seems this has not been built [successfully] for aarch64 (

$ uname -a

I have the following now trying to run pikaur on an odroid-c2 (aarch64):

It used to work, but what is this haskell business all of a sudden?

Is there a way to use pikaur to clean unused dependencies from your computer?

Looks broken to me, gives a permission error on start

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pikaur/'

I've reported it here:

@E3LDDfrK There was a major python update (3.7.x - 3.8), all aur packages that depend on python 3 have to be rebuilt.
