Use reflector, adjust to your locale:

% which upp
upp () {
for i in 1 2 4 8
reflector -c US -a $i -f 5 -p http -p https -p ftp --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.reflector
if [ $? -eq 0 ]
cat /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.reflector
sudo pacman -Syu
return 0
echo "something is fucked up."

EDIT 2: my bad.. dammit still have to learn to run a -Syy regularly. Everything went fine.. I was just not in sync ahah.

EDIT: that's weird, clicking "Download from Mirror" in the package page downloads it without problems.

Sadly one of the mirrors for python-keyring-9.0-1 has been offline for days if anyone else is unable to download it. I'll try to contact his maintainer in the community repo here.

@MS and @Tids - Not the fault of this PKGBUILD; makepkg has not supported this feature for some months now:

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?

fabiscafe 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.
