That sounds like a yay bug. vercmp 1.3.8 1.3.8a outputs 1 so it's known to be a new version. Bumping pkgrel should work and is more sane than bumping the epoch.

For me, yay was adamant at wanting to build proftpd-2:1.3.8-1 instead of proftpd-2:1.3.8a-1 until I manually deleted the /home/builduser/.cache/yay/proftpd directory.

Maybe the epoch needs to be incremented to fix this, the change history indicates that there was the same problem when this package was updated from upstream version 1.3.6 to 1.3.6a.

mod_sql_passwd module is missing in PKGBUILD

Edit: Created an upstream issue report, 550 PWD: Permission denied for initial directory listing since 1.3.8.

Upgrading from proftpd-2:1.3.7e-1 to proftpd-2:1.3.8-1 causes a fatal regression for me, in that the users cannot list the shared root directory any more. I have manually downgraded to proftpd-2:1.3.7e-1 until I can figure out what is going on.

My current suspicions are a towards a regression with the mod_facl.c module as I am using ACL to control file access, which might be a rather uncommon setup, and I seriously doubt a regression this severe would not have been found before releasing 1.3.8.

proftpd-git is compatible with OpenSSL 3

produnis commented on 2022-11-09 09:12 (UTC)

you need to install openssl-1.1 to make proftpd run again after recent arch update...

@maid: Then it is likely an upstream issue.

2:1.3.7c-1. Proftpd won't start with my custom config. He will start with default config only.
