My guess is on

yay --bottomup --save should correct it.

==> Packages to NOT upgrade: (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3, ^4 or repo name)

Don't see anything wrong there

Hi, I think the numbers in the "Packages to upgrade" menu aren't right. See the following.

:: 2 Packages to upgrade.
2  aur/python-cli_helpers  1.0.2-1 -> 1.1.0-1
1  aur/qemu-user-static    3.1-2   -> 3.1.0-1
==> Packages to not upgrade: (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3, ^4 or repo name)
==> 1
:: Checking for conflicts...
:: Checking for inner conflicts...
[Aur: 1]  python-cli_helpers-1.1.0-1

  1 python-cli_helpers               (Installed) (Build Files Exist)
==> Packages to cleanBuild?
==> [N]one [A]ll [Ab]ort [I]nstalled [No]tInstalled or (1 2 3, 1-3, ^4)

@hringriin. I was having the same issue. Also freshly installed ArchLinux 32bit.

Solved by using another repo from and pacman -Syyu

I get the last go package and successfully install yay.

>$ makepkg
go build -v -ldflags '-s -w -X main.version=9.0.1' -o yay -mod=vendor
flag provided but not defined: -mod
make: *** [Makefile:51: build] Error 2

This is the output of makepkg on A freshly installed Arch Linux 32 bit.

I could see, that my version of the go package is 2:1.10.3-1.1 whereas the latest go version is 2:1.11.4-1, but, as of yet only for 64 bit architectures.

Is this due to my older version of go or am I missing something else?

By default sudo will cache your password for 5 minutes.

Thanks for yay. Is it normal when running % yay -Sua for some packages to simply install but others ask for sudo password? (I've never used any wrappers for doing bulk aur package updates, nor system updates.)

@twnaing I had the same error. I could fix it upgrading my installed package of "go".

@adizero you're not supposed to source this yourself. This installs a completion spec, but users who wish to use completions are supposed to install the bash-completion package as that both sets up the automatic lazy loading of completion specs, and contains the shared helper functions relied on by many command completions.

adizero commented on 2018-12-21 08:24

Shouldn't the bash-completion package be listed as an optional dependency? Without it an attempt to use the completion (after pressing <TAB>) fails. E.g.: $ source /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/yay $ yay bash: _get_comp_words_by_ref: command not found
