The udunits.install script is unnecessary and should be removed because pacman hooks texinfo-install.hook and texinfo-remove.hook (provided by texinfo package) already take care of updating info entries.

The path to the source has been changed to

The source line should read:

As @icaruseffect said, there is no suffix "Source" in the name of the file when you download it.

So, I made this three change in PKBUILD and then I was able to compile udunits.

Change the checksum in line 17 to: sha256sums=('590baec83161a3fd62c00efa66f6113cec8a7c461e3f61a5182167e0cc5d579e')

change the path in lines 20 and 26 from: cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver-Source" to: cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"

Then, I was able to compile and install udunits using: makepkg -sric

The path to the source has been changed to (-source is missing now in the url)

This has to be fixed in 3 Lines of the PKGBUILD.

Also Checksum was changed: sha256sums=('e9b9f623d4e1876dc094c7e0859cb70a5b25a1f023b82528a0b2dbb3a4d3cf7a')

The sha256sum of udunits-2.2.28 seems not right. Might need fixing

I was going to post here, but just realised that I posted here back in May. Would you consider adding aarch64 to the arch line of the PKGBUILD? If compiles and installs on arm64,

Morn commented on 2020-05-16 23:15 (UTC)

@Feakster: "Any" is only for programs that also work on other architectures after compilation (or software that is not compiled at all). See

ARM is not supported by regular Arch Linux, therefore it is not taken into account for AUR PKGBUILDs either...

Just tried installing this on aarch64 hardware, and all was fine. The R units package requires udunits to be installed in order to compile. Is there a reason the architecture is not set to "any"?

For some reason, I couldn't access the ftp source, but it works fine with this one:

Workaround: Able to get this to work by changing version in PKGBUILD to 2.2.21 and using the following signature. sha256='9b75f5ff0484adddbaf04924e8af3d3c9fb4b31cc5524c3d4b80b4c1307d1a7d'
