Quick update for pacman 4. There will be bugs. Please report.

Do not use /etc/conf.d/pkgupdate.conf for passing options to the server. There is now a dedicated configuration file located by default at /etc/pkgupdate.conf.

I see what you mean, indead no number for AUR is reported if there are no AUR updates. My bad. I've fixed it in the latest commit, just redownload and install again. I'll add the configuration file within the weekend as well. Thank you for your feedback.

I understood that; what I meant was this:

$ -n -p "{upd} " -a "{upd}" 2>/dev/null

When I have 0 repo updates and 0 AUR updates. What I expected to see (but I
don't mind it not being this way) was this:

$ -n -p "{upd} " -a "{upd}" 2>/dev/null
0 0

All I was asking was if seeing "0" instead of "0 0" was intended.

$ -n -p "{upd} " -a "{upd}" 2>/dev/null
0 1

There is one aur update and no repo updates.

Thaks for the suggestions. Is the command you gave me supposed to output only
one number if the number of repo updates and AUR updates are both zero?
(That's what it's doing for me.)

The conky client supports further customization using the -p and -a flags.
For example
# -p is the format for the repo updates and -a for aur updates. -n -p "{upd} " -a "{upd}" 2>/dev/null #note the space in the first {upd}
will return
<REPO UPDATES> <AUR UPDATES> # a space inbetween

Then you can process it easily using awk or whatever.
The {upd} argument supports python formatting, so for example if you insert {upd:>3} the result will always be 4 characters long, padded with spaces in front if the number is shorter.

As for the configuration file I have planned it and I'll soon put a new PKGBUILD up.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Also, could this program output to plain text, like the conky script, except
without the conky formatting? I have an X-less setup, so I can't use the
existing scripts. Thanks.

One other tiny suggestion: Can a program be made that outputs the status of
repo and AUR updates to simple text? I don't use X, so I can't use the
existing scripts.

This program should create a configuration file in /etc/conf.d to configure
the options passed to the pkgupdate daemon. Otherwise, many thanks for the
lovely program.
