If no keyserver is specified, GnuPG uses hkps://

Unfortunately, at this time, almost no servers in that pool are active.

Update the gpg configuration in your build environment to use a different (pool of) keyserver(s).

pamac build spotify-dev

Choose e to edit build files. Add this line to PKGBUILD

DLAGENTS=("http::/usr/bin/wget -r -np -nd -H %u")

Save and apply transaction. Good luck!

***Please disregard, I was able to fix this by reseting build files through pamac. Thanks!

Server seems to work on my end but I also get the checksum fail error, and I don't understand how to fix this even though I went through the comments. Newbie question of the day... What is a clean build ?Would really appreciate some help. New Arch user, I'm used to Debian. Thanks in advance!

Spotify servers always drop connections in the first few days of any release, it fails and can't resume. Just wait until the servers are stable enough to complete the download.

Or maybe download the binary with wget (which does have resume failed) then drop it on the aur helper building directory and edit the PKGBUILD. You can also edit /etc/pacman.conf to uncomment the use of wget of curl with resume failed, but the output will be uglier.

It seems the repo servers are not working correctly, it prematurely closes the connection after 1%. Is there an alternate download location?

@guemidiborhane Do the clean build.

guemidiborhane commented on 2021-03-28 02:26

checksum is failing for some reason

andrhua commented on 2021-03-27 14:42

@Renom it does

ReNoM commented on 2021-03-04 13:21

Does it actually require gtk2?

@MCOfficer, I don't think the sudo on the gpg command is required unless you run makepkg with sudo as well. I actually had to import the key as my regular user for it to be accepted.
