Apparently upstream removes the old package immediately when releasing a new version. So if you encounter a 404 error when building, just click on “Flag package out-of-date” above. Thanks!

now only version 1.17.2 is available.. of course you need to change the sha256sum in PKGBUILD as well

@jbbr Thank you for the info. I'll remember to flag the package for future 404's.

And thanks to everyone who maintains this package! I am feeling the positive vibes :)

buzo: Ok, thanks for keeping the package up-to-date!

ogasser: Thanks, we're already having our own cron jobs. The update just occurred at night for both of us.

buzo: It's just a suggestion and might reduce the number of "I'm getting a 404 for this package" postings ;) If you would like I can also run the cronjob and send the email to you and jbbr.

ogasser: The time-to-realease was five hours and 14 minutes. That is not bad for an AUR package, isn't it? What do you expect?

ogasser commented on 2018-09-18 08:05

A suggestion to spot new versions sooner: Can any of the package maintainers run a cron job checking if the latest version is still available on the server and send an email if it is not? This way we could reduce the time-to-release of this AUR package.

@modulitos: This happens when a new minor release is available on the upstream APT-Repository. For some reason they immediately make the previous release unavailable (404) which causes this PKGBUILD to fail with an 404 error. I updated the package to 1.16.1 which should fix this issue.

Please use the "Flag package out-of-date" action in the future, thanks :)

I am getting an error when updating this package, caused by a 404 at the url: https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/pool/main/s/signal-desktop/signal-desktop_1.16.0_amd64.deb

Is anyone else having this issue as well? Perhaps I am missing something?
