Great that the problem was solved!

the output for "pacman --version" is: Pacman v6.0.2 - libalpm v13.0.2

so, for what you mentioned, here's the problem: it's too old.

WOW, you nailed it immediately: I altered the PKGBUILD as you suggested and it installed flawlessly! Thank you very much!

@peaolo What is your pacman version (pacman --version)? Using checksums for git repositories requires pacman 6.1.0 or newer. If you have an older pacman on Manjaro, you can skip the b2sum check by either replacing the hash in the PKGBUILD with SKIP or possibly using the --skipchecksums option for makepkg.

Hi, I'm experiencing some issues while updating the package on my Arch-derived distro (Manjaro). I tried to do this from its default package manager and from an aur-helper (aurman), but I had no luck. Immediately after cloning the repo from git, during source validation process, it can't find the "jaconv" file (or directory?). Part of the output was in Italian, so I translated it for you, but maybe it could differ slightly from the original version.

==> Validation of source file with b2sums...
jaconv ... NOT FOUND
==> ERROR: One or more files didn't pass validity chack!
2024-04-28 16:38:57,095 - wrappers - makepkg - ERROR - makepkg query ['makepkg', '-cf', '--noconfirm'] failed in directory /home/peaolo/.cache/aurman/python-jaconv

If I take a look into the installation folder I can spot a "jaconv" sub directory, but the "src" one is completely empty. Here's a representation of the python-jaconv folder structure:

|-.git      <-- it has some content, but I don't think it's relevant
|-src        <-- it's empty

If I should attach some command's output, or refer to Manjaro community support, rather than Arch AUR please, let me know. Thanks in advance.

When building from a clean CHROOT, I get the error "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'setuptools'". Could you add the following to the PKGBUILD: makedepends=('git' 'python-setuptools') THANKS
