@j.taala 7.19.1 is out

j.taala commented on 2020-02-10 21:30

No probs pythoneer. Btw, I've just updated to 7.18.0 and also changed the checksums to sha256 (preferred for AUR). Let me know if see any issues here.

Just to give an update on this – the problem is gone for my case. I think the CDN is progressively updating their caches. Maybe they deployed a wrong version and immediately fixed it in the primary source and that update needs to ripple through the CDN nodes. Thanks for your quick responses btw!

j.taala commented on 2020-02-09 11:03

Well crap, must be an issue on their mirroring or CDN nodes end.

wget gets me the correct file (note the download address resolves differently - looks like they're using cloudfront, not synced up properly?):

P.S. don't laugh at my download speeds (blimmin` Australia...)

Downloading the file from with Mozilla Firefox gets me the correct file.

Doing the same with wget gets me the wrong canary file

Thanks pythoneer. That's definitely a different file that the same makepkg downloads for me (even though download link is the same). Any thoughts here?

Only thing I can think of is some CDN / mirror issue (e.g. CDN node closest to where you are has an issue where it's pointing to the canary builds?). I'm in Australia btw and can confirm installing via yay downloads and checkums the correct file...

Haven't seen this issue before.

Could one of you (who is having the issue re checksums - and as pythoneer mentioned: retrieving the wrong file) test removing any yay cached download by deleting the ~./.cache/yay/postman-bin folder and try install via yay again?


rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/postman-bin

yay -S postman-bin

Cheers, Jay.

Thanks pythoneer. Canary builds designed for early adopters - seems it's downloading a canary build instead - which is whack (shouldn't happen). I'm trying to understand why that happens when the download link should explicitly be

pythoneer commented on 2020-02-09 08:19

I am having the same problem with the md5sum of bfebe8d41369d074cbef60ce04ee8ddc . i have uploaded the file from my cache here

downloading the file directly from my browser is getting me the "correct" file and md5sum.

I have binary compared the *.tar.gz files (cmp command) and they are in fact different. i extracted both and the one from the aur differs in the overall extracted top folder and the executable file name. In the archive directly downloaded from the website the top folder is called "Postman" and the executable is called "Postman" whereas the top folder from the aur is called "PostmanCanary" and the executable is called "PostmanCanary".

That was the immediate difference i have noticed without investigating the binaries further – i think the aur script somehow downloads a "canary" version of Postman?
