The issue is caused by python3-xcpf. See here for a working patch:

Powerpill is broken, it may be related to latest pycman, idk:

% powerpill -Syu

@Xyne I had the same problem on Manjaro. The contents of the try block is commented out. Uncommenting worked.

$ diff /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/ powerpill-2018.11/ 
< #import Reflector
>   import Reflector

@DroidFreak32 I've just rebuilt the package locally via the AUR's PKGBUILD and I see no indentation error. Can you compare the installed file at /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/ to in the source archive? I wonder if something went wrong when the file was copied to your system.

If the error was in the source file, I and several other people would have noticed it I think.

I had this error running powerpill

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/", line 183, in _run_module_as_main
    mod_name, mod_spec, code = _get_module_details(mod_name, _Error)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/", line 153, in _get_module_details
    code = loader.get_code(mod_name)
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 860, in get_code
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 791, in source_to_code

  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/", line 57
    except ImportError:
IndentationError: expected an indented block

So I replaced the try-except block with just


I know this is not the correct fix, so if anyone else could provide the correct fix I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

@Xyne: Thank you really much!

Sorry, a lot happened in the last few weeks and I didn't notice that my release scripts had broken. Everything should be working again now.

The source is 404. That doesn't mean the built pacman packages should serve as replacement.
