The package has been flagged out of date again. I want to remind, that we package the stable version of spotify, not the testing version. Stable versions can be found under the following link and have not been updated for a long time:

You can fix the GPG key issue by using:

curl -sS | gpg --import -

To get this to update from the GPG error, the pinned comment didn't work. I took the tip from dymdipi. To make it more clear.

Remove: validpgpkeys=('8FD3D9A8D3800305A9FFF259D1742AD60D811D58') # Spotify <>

And add: validpgpkeys=('931FF8E79F0876134EDDBDCCA87FF9DF48BF1C90' '2EBF997C15BDA244B6EBF5D84773BD5E130D1D45') # Spotify <>

Hope that helps

After successfully installing, is anyone having trouble connecting once you log in? I am constantly offline despite no proxy settings on my machine. I am behind a wireguard VPN. I had to downgrade to to fix.

Got it working by modifying the build file as follows:

              '2EBF997C15BDA244B6EBF5D84773BD5E130D1D45') # Spotify <>
validpgpkeys=('8FD3D9A8D3800305A9FFF259D1742AD60D811D58') # Spotify <>

Just an FYI, I imported pubkey_0D811D58.gpg but still got an error (no helpers):

$makepkg -si .... spotify- ... FAILED (invalid public key 2EBF997C15BDA244B6EBF5D84773BD5E130D1D45)

So I renamed directory and git cloned into a new directory, then ran again with no problems.

I am having the

spotify- ... FAILED (invalid public key 2EBF997C15BDA244B6EBF5D84773BD5E130D1D45)

Error. How do I do a clean build?

@dymdipi tried importing the new key manually, but still got an error message. seems having yay cleanBuild solved it for me.

You should try this later again. It seems not to be an issue by this PKGBUILD

I just tested this downloadlink, it is working for me/here.

Hi NicoHood,

It's seems like the source url changed or something is blocking the complete download of the .deb file

@NicoHood Had the same issue, but following the pinned comment and running a clean reinstall sorted it out.

I'm seeing the same error as gunix. I've tried the pinned comment but still getting the error for:

spotify- ... FAILED (invalid public key 2EBF997C15BDA244B6EBF5D84773BD5E130D1D45)
