The sabnzbd 3.0.0 release is python3, yay! I've also moved the install from /opt to /usr/lib/sabnzbd and /var/lib/sabnzbd. The .install file should move things around as needed, but please post if it doesn't.

For some reason the sabnzbd.service didnt get updated for me when upgrading to 3.x . Tried disabling and re-enabling the service and reinstalling the package but no luck. the service file still points to the old /opt installation. Any suggestions?

[Unit] Description=SABnzbd binary newsreader

[Service] ExecStart=/bin/sh -c "python2 /opt/sabnzbd/ -l0 -f /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini -d --pid /tmp" Type=forking PIDFile=/tmp/ User=jamie Group=users [Install]

It's now in [extra]:

Maybe you just need to refresh your pacman db.

Was unable to build this today, as one of the AUR targets no longer exists.

Error: target not found "python-notify2"

Apologies for erroneously flagging this as out of date. In spite of being up to date, the UI was still saying it was out of date. A restart of the service and hard reload of the web UI cleared the notification.

@bobpaul: Glad to hear you got it sorted out. Any idea why your sabnzbd.ini was also in /opt/sabnzbd/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini? Your log spew also made me realize I'd missed a "Moved" to "Copied" text fixing.

I think maybe I could account for the "[ALPM] warning: /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini saved as /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini.pacsave" :|

@greencopper I had to stop sabnzbd, copy /opt/sabnzbd/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini to /var/lib/sabnzbd/ and set the permissions properly. Then everything worked.

@fryfrog My /var/log/pacman.log shows:

@fryfrog: Sure thing. No, I haven't noticed any negative impact either. I just wanted to be able to re-enable all of my Pushover notifications, so I took the time to pin python-cheroot.

fryfrog commented on 2020-08-20 21:47

@tixetsal: Thanks for the rollback commands. Have you noticed any actual impact beyond the error? I haven't. :|

tixetsal commented on 2020-08-20 21:37

For those of you who are experiencing the errors caused by python-cheroot you can resolve the issue by:

yay -Rdd python-cheroot


sudo pacman -U python-cheroot-8.4.2-1-any.pkg.tar.zst

Then edit /etc/pacman.conf and uncomment the beginning of the "IgnorePkg" line and make it read:

IgnorePkg = python-cheroot

The next time you call yay/pacman for an update, it should notify you that you've pinned the package and it's ignoring the update.

@martinm1000 This is not a package bug, maybe you should report it upstream.
