I also got the "makepkg: invalid option '--pkg'" error.

I got the message when i tried to update backintime and backintime-cli, with both Pamac and yaourt, with the following answers (French language, but the order of questions should be the same):
==> Éditer PKGBUILD ? [O/n] -> n (No)
==> Lancer la compilation de backintime ? [O/n] -> o (Yes)
==> Installer seulement backintime ? [O/n] -> o (Yes)
makepkg: option invalide '--pkg'

For the update to work, you need to say 'No (n)' when asked if you want to install only backintime (3rd question), and likewise for backintime-cli.

@Tids - Why are you passing the --pkg option to makepkg?

Fabish commented on 2016-03-25 11:48

for me there is following error

makepkg: invalid option '--pkg'

so it wont build

@Wabuo: I see, thanks for the hint. So I will await the update for this package once upstream sorted out the last quirks...

@jmx it is a fixed bug.
For further informations see the issue:

Somehow the .desktop for the "root" version of Backintime does not work for me. When I click the symbol from the applications menu, the mouse changes to the busy-icon but after a while it returns to normal with no application window appearing. Not even the prompt to enter my password appears.

But when I enter `pkexec backintime-qt4` into a terminal (which is the Exec= line in the "root" version .desktop), I am instantly presented with the password prompt and Backintime starts fine afterwards.

Why does this work from the terminal, but not from the GUI applications menu? Am I missing some settings somewhere? I'm on GNOME 3.18 from the standard repos.

Thanks a lot graysky. I can confirm that Aura works with 1.1.12-2.

@Simone - I honestly can't remember why I added the conflicts/provides arrays. Since they're so specific I'd like to think that I had a good reason. I just removed them and bumped to 1.1.12-2. Try your AUR wrapper.

I can confirm what Simone98RC said, Aura doesn't work either.

Simone98RC commented on 2016-02-15 18:18

The required versioning equality between GUI and CLI version makes AUR wrappers like Pamac unable to do automatic updates (because a dependency is requiring the other one updated to same release).
Please prevent that by removing the versioning control, thanks much.
