The latest version of this package builds just fine with apt >= 1.4. The only problem is that the latest apt version in the aur is 1.3.2. Therefore I won't be able to update this package until the apt aur package is updated to 1.4 or above.

apt 1.4 is only in debian testing/unstable so I don't think there's a rush to update python-apt. [1]

TL;DR: I'm going to keep this package's version inline with the version of apt in the aur.

Thanks for the archive link @jdtournier, I've updated the source link so at least the package actually builds and installs now.

In case it helps: the current version (1.1.0~beta5) is no longer hosted on the Debian FTP repo, but the same file can be found from the Ubuntu archives. I just modified the 'source' line to:


and it worked fine.

It looks like you'll need to also update apt to version 1.4.0 before python-apt 1.4.0 will compile, so maybe this fix is good enough for now?

The problem is back now
Failure while downloading

There is not python-apt_1.1.0~beta5.tar.xz, I can see only python-apt_1.4.0~beta2.tar.xz. I think an update is needed.

I can confirm the problem, haven't figured out a solution though.

I'm getting an error when I try to build the newest version of python-apt (1.4.0~beta2). Here's the terminal output:

Any help is appreciated.

I'm updating the package to 1.4.0~beta2, sorry for the delay.

This PKGBUILD works if the version is changed to '1.1.0~beta5'. Could the maintainer please update the PKGBUILD?

Remains un-updated, as per flag of 2016-09-19:

Well, the actual problem wasn't the sha, but a broken apt build.
Anyways, updated now, since apt is fixed since yesterday.

The real shame is that Debian removes the source files that often..
So prepare for this package to break with 404 as soon as beta5 or similar is out.
