Please add python-setuptools as a dependency. Without it the console script entry points don't get created. Without this pkgbuilder cant be run.

@gauthma: AUR has updated their API in a way that is incompatible with PKGBUILDer v3.2.0. v3.3.0 (experimental!) should be out later today.

I seem to have stumbled to another bug... though I'm not sure, because two days ago it worked fine... In any case, when running pkgbuilder -Syu I get:

:: Synchronizing package databases...
==> ERROR: AURDict has an unknown PackageBase key (Package: AURPackage.from_aurdict())

Is this a legitimate problem, or has something in my system gone haywire? (I've just updated and rebooted -- to no avail, the problem remains)

oh. sorry. found the cause, should be working in next release (later today).

Attempting to upgrade with $ pkgbuilder -u yields this error:

$ pkgbuilder -u
==> Synchronizing package databases...
==> Starting full system upgrade...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pkgbuilder", line 12, in <module>

File "/usr/lib/python3.3/site-packages/pkgbuilder/", line 149, in auto_upgrade
TypeError: format() argument after ** must be a mapping, not list

If the debug output is required, let me know in a comment.

@Kwpolska: Ok works great.

Kwpolska commented on 2014-01-22 17:01

3rd*, even better.

Kwpolska commented on 2014-01-22 17:01

@silvergeko: oh. sorry. fixed with yet another release, the 2nd today.

I tried to update and I get the following error:

PKGBUILDer already supports the new AUR (since an hour, to be exact). Also, aurqt, my new project, is being updated right now and this comment is here to test it.
