I guess none will be able to do this. Pacman is able to resolve this internally if it has a full repo with all packages.

If you build VDR, first, with existing plugins installed, then you can't install VDR as doing this will kill the dependency of all installed plugins. BUT without installing the new VDR you can't update your plugins (meaning rebuild them).

An AUR helper would basically have to resolve this manually to find out that it is OK to force install VDR in this case to have it for building all the plugins.

VDR including all plugins was never planned to be built with an AUR helper and as you will always get this deadlock when manually building packages, the only way is to force install the built VDR package and then upgrade all plugins.

I tried it with all available AUR helpers, but none of them was able to resolve the right update order. Could you please shortly advise how you did prebuild the repo and added it as a local file repo?

It does not work, because it fails at rebuilding vdr-markad:

Validating source files with sha256sums... vdr-markad-3.4.3.tar.gz ... FAILED

But after this is fixed, I'll re-try it with your suggestion!

Does it work with "yay -Syu"?

All I can tell you is that it works absolutely fine if you prebuild the repo, add it as a local file repo and then run "pacman -Syu". If yay is not able to know that "vdr" is to be built first and then satisfies the "vdr-api" dependency, then yay is broken.

Thanks for providing this VDR AUR package! Is there a smooth way to update VDR including its packages? My "yay -Sua" ends with: error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing vdr (2.6.5-1) breaks dependency 'vdr-api=2.6.3' required by vdr-epgsearch :: installing vdr (2.6.5-1) breaks dependency 'vdr-api=2.6.3' required by vdr-femon :: installing vdr (2.6.5-1) breaks dependency 'vdr-api=2.6.3' required by vdr-markad s:: installing vdr (2.6.5-1) breaks dependency 'vdr-api=2.6.3' required by vdr-streamdev-server :: installing vdr (2.6.5-1) breaks dependency 'vdr-api=2.6.3' required by vdr-xineliboutput I know, I can deinstall all packages and install them again, but is this the only way?

i have erased vdr-api and now is ok

I don't know what the problem is. Please describe more in detail if the problem still exists.

AND please describe in English language. If needed, use "Google Translate". Really helps me if I can read comments "on the go" without fiddling around with my smartphone to get comments copied into Google Translate.

:: l'installazione di vdr (2.4.7-1) interrompe la dipendenza 'vdr=2.4.6' richiesta da vdr-api

Hi, could you please add aarch64 to the architecture list in PKGBUILD? Would be good for the plugins, too.
