Thank you for your comment fryfrog. I am not sure what happened in my setting but simply removing and reinstalling did not work either and gave the same error. I had to redirect the output of yaourt -S plex-media-server-plexpass command to a file first, and then renamed all files/folders that this command complained about already existing, I simply did not want to delete them, just in case. Installing afterwards worked, after which I deleted those renamed files/folders manually. I hope the same scenario doesn't occur during the next update.

@hakayova: I have no idea what is causing what you're seeing. The package is of course going to contain pretty much all the files that already exist. Do you some how have two packages installed? I'd probably start by just removing it and re-installing it.

This does not happen when I upgrade this package myself (nor any other package). Maybe see if #archlinux has any suggestions?

Hi again, 835-1 > 876-1 upgrade fails with the same behavior reported before. Pages of scrolling error messages complaining many files already exist in the system. I am happy to troubleshoot if this is working for others.

@hakayova: Do you mean going from plex-media-server to plex-media-server-plexpass? Or just trying to re-install it?

Edit: Oh, 835 -> 858, I missed that.

Hi package maintainers,

Upgrading from to fails with pages of error messages indicating many files already exist in the system. I just wanted to report this.

Yup! I'd buy plexpass first, make sure your existing server sees that you have it and then just install this package over top of the other one. It'll replace the non-plexpass version and should come up w/ all your old stuff.

I hope! I've never tested it, but literally nobody has complained it doesn't work! :)

If I were to buy a plexpass would I just grab the snapshot for this package instead and install like normal? I've been using the non plexpass version for a couple of years now.

Ah k.. Yea guess I need to change the LD_LIBRARY_PATH again.

I'm just going to redo the package to match a lot of yours :)

If you flip to the second page, you can see where I thought the same thing. Turns out they just moved where the bundled libva is and our hard coded LD_LIBRARY_PATH needed to be updated. Did it move again or do you need to update yours?

tmoore commented on 2019-03-18 23:21

FYI.. looks like libva might be a new depend.
