It sounds like some of the files in your installation may have gotten owned by the root user (or another non-splunk user). Try running chown -R splunk:splunk /opt/splunk and see if that fixes the issue.

After the update I could not log in because no users were present, so I started Splunk with

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk start

and set up the admin user.

Now I can only start with this command, trying to start using systemd gives the following errors (output of journalctl):

Seems like a permission problem but I don't really understand what is going wrong here...

Starting with 7.1.3, 32-bit is no longer supported in the main Splunk release. Instead, 32-bit support continues in the 6.3.* series.

If there are any 32-bit users out there, let me know and I will create a separate 32-bit package for Splunk.

Starting with 6.5.0, Splunk now ships with an empty users.ini file (located in /opt/splunk/etc/users). If you are having issues upgrading, try deleting this file first (it is normally empty, so this shouldn't be a problem).

Thanks, didn't know about those. I updated the PKGBUILD.

please use source_i686, source_x86_64, sha256_sums_i686 and sha256sums_x86_64 as per

current pkgbuild breaks with mksrcinfo:
cd splunk; mksrcinfo -o /dev/stdout
