@bramswenson: I don't have any issue when using aura and the way it caches packages. Technically, it's pacaur way of caching. Either way, changed the PKGBUILD. I update the pkgrel everytime the PIA changes the zip for one reason or another.

@tom.swartz07: Yeah, I knew about that. Thanks for the link to refresh my memory.

The files that are conflicting should be updated to use the alternative uri path: source=('unique_package_name::file_uri')

This build script should not require end users to remove cached packages. It should download the packages with the version name in the downloaded file name. You can do this with the correct formatting of source array entries. This would download the files with some unique id rather than having the same name for every version. Problem solved. Please update your PKGBUILD file so users don't have to repair it manually each time. This is within your power.

@10479 This is because pacaur is using the old assets from your cache. I corrected this by deleting my pacaur cache for my user:

rm -rf ~/.cache/pacaur/*

After doing this, it works for me with pacaur -S private-internet-access-vpn

I was stuck on version 3.3.2-5 (now 3.3.3-4) because every week when I run updates, this package doesn't pass the checks. It still worked fine so I didn't really care to mess with it. Anyway, pacaur hates this package for some reason, but grabbing the snapshot and using makepkg worked without a problem. Thanks to the maintainer though for putting in all of the work on this.

I am having the same issue as @ZAKhan just now.

@ZAKhan, looks like they were updated (again). Fixed now.

I did a clean install as per @flamusdiu instructions still getting errors

Works like a charm! I would suggest updating the version's rel so people with failed caches don't have to clear those, but it's no big deal.
