Just having pass installed with a key set up wasn't enough for me, I had to follow this:

@mjandrews I opened an issue for it:

mjandrews commented on 2021-12-06 20:06

With regard to the inconsistent information about releases (i.e. GitHub listing v.1.8.12 as pre-release yet it being listed as the latest official binary elsewhere, etc), I was going to open an Issue on GitHub (as suggested by @ali.molaei), but they want a specific template to be used for Issues (understandably) and it did not look like my query would be welcome. On the template, however, they do say to contact for matters that don't fit the template. So I did that. I will report back if I learn something that clarifies the situation.

@mjandrews Thanks for your reply.

I understand, and this happened before too, maybe it's better to have a conversation about it with the developers on protonmail's github

You are right, If it is a pre-release, why notifying to update and put it on the website, If it is a final release, why is the github tag wrong?

The team on github is pretty active and will almost answer within a day or so, and fix the issues, I appreciate if you start the conversation there

@ali.molaei I take your point. Just to provide some context, today the gui app started saying my version out of date and nagging me to update. I did what I described below with PKGBUILD and now the app is happy again. Also here it lists 1.8.12 as the latest version. I see now, and it not notice before, that on GitHub 1.8.12 is listed as pre-release and 1.8.10 is "Latest", but something funny is happening if a) the app itself is nagging me to get the latest version and b) the official binaries are 1.8.12 not 1.8.10. It seems like an inconsistency to me and maybe that just have not flagged 1.8.12 as "Latest" on GitHub but are seemingly treating it as the stable version everywhere else.

@mjandrews This package has never been on the latest commit, this is the latest stable release, and 1.8.11, 1.8.12 releases are marked as "Pre-release" on Github ( so, this package is up-to-date in my opinion; if you want an up-to-latest-commit package I recommend you to create a separate protonmail-bridge-git package.

About the commit being used for this package, it is one commit after the 1.8.10 which is just fixing go.sum file which was preventing the package from being compiled. it will be replaced by a tag when another stable release is available.

I was also failing to update/install in the same way as @rockryeidel but on paru. I tried the usual cache cleaning/rebuild methods with paru --redownload --rebuild <pkg_name> and paru -Scc to no avail.

The solution I found was to remove (or more cautiously move it elsewhere) the ~/.cache/paru/clone/protonmail-bridge/ directory and its contents

ali.molaei commented on 2021-11-05 11:43

@rockryeidel can you try a clean build? I'm not familiar with pamac, but you can download the PKGBUILD on your system and put it in a package, then run makepkg in that folder and see if it builds?

Archking commented on 2021-11-05 08:06

No pgp in this package is prompted to enter the key ring and hopes to be repaired. Or can it be poured manually? How much is it

rockryeidel commented on 2021-11-03 21:42

I am getting this error when attempting updated from 1.8.10-1:

ERROR: /var/tmp/pamac-build-rockyreidel/protonmail-bridge/proton-bridge is not a clone of Aborting...

Any advice on further troubleshooting this? I don't believe there are any modifications on my build.

Update: Resetting the package build files resolved this. I must have had some edits to my build files previously.
