Seems like a similar issue to what @kohrVid has pointed out is happening with 1.32.0 beta 4 - only beta 5 is available.

@captn3m0 Thanks for writing this as it's worked quite well for me in the past. It looks like signal released a new version of the desktop client last night and deleted the old one so this doesn't work anymore. I think the PKGBUILD file needs the following added:

pkgver=1.31.0beta.2
source=("<https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/pool/main/s/signal-desktop-beta/signal-desktop-beta_1.31.0-beta.2_amd64.deb>")
sha256sums=('8f70aa5b3644a6e75273bf075113d55b4cfa8cd4f1f010a45928f4f5976b1d29')

Verified that there are no conflicts between signal-desktop and signal-desktop-beta, and now this package provides signal-desktop-beta instead.

I think this should either not provide signal-desktop (perhaps provide e.g. signal-desktop-beta), or be set up in a different way so that it doesn't conflict with https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/signal-desktop-bin. The reason is that production and beta versions do not conflict and use different data locations (see https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/#install-the-beta).

if any of you are in need of the package, just go to https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/releases and check for the current release and the modify this PKGBUILD to use the current version and skip the integrity check.

If you'd like the old PKGBUILDs to keep working and not 404, please upvote this issue asking Signal team to not delete old packages: https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/issues/2882

I think it would be a good idea if this package would have a provides and conflicts with signal-desktop-bin in the PKGBUILD.

The deb file gives a 404 error.
