I'm getting a 404 error when downloading downloading a deb.

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

I was able to confirm the 404 result with that url.

@teohhanhui You are completely right, i totally overlooked it this time. Cannot revert back though now. Thanks for the note, I normally should have done this. My fault.

As fixes and additional features are added to the PKGBUILD that influence the resulting package, the pkgrel should be incremented by 1. When a new version of the software is released, this value must be reset to 1.

BrightLight, PGP verifications are definitely not "outside the [scope of] the typical AUR install procedure."

Try using a better keyserver like hkps://

@NicoHood Thanks for packaging Spotify. I think your additional GPG checks are breaking this package constantly for too many people (as is clear by many other comments). The additional steps are outside the typical AUR install procedure and this key server's connection seems to be inconsistent. This is not a good idea; please reconsider.

Edit: Also, if you're going to provide this custom install procedure, please provide the equivalents of '$ makepkg -sirc'.

Checksum for "spotify-stable-" and "spotify-stable-" failed, please fix or maybe disable them since there's a GPG check anyway.

Had to disable all check to succesfully build pkg, beside that, soft is working.

[EDIT 25/02/18 :] Fixed, thank you !

Please disable checksums for spotify-stable--Release.sig and spotify-stable--Release. They are constantly changed on server (timestamps?) and are already verified by gpg.

If you are experiencing problems with the client while using a tiling window manager check the arch wiki spotify article, section Deadlock GUI Thread.
