The reason this happens with both the archzfs repo and the AUR package is because the non-dkms package is compiled against a specific version of the Linux kernel. When the Arch kenel gets updated, this package falls out of date. This is only ever the case for 1-2 days. As I understand it there is a certain amount of automation involved. Just be patient and wait for a day before trying to update again. No manual process is needed.

Got it. Thanks again! It's been a while since I encountered this problem, I've somehow forgotten about it... sorry for the hassle!

I think what described is also the case for archzfs repository. I also use archzfs and I get the same error often. I just wait until the packages get updated with working dependencies. Flagging the package as out-of-date might help the maintainers become aware of the issue.

Hi @dmp1ce, thanks for your reply! Sorry, I should have clarified before that I'm using the archzfs repo. I remember in the past that I would have to manually update the dependencies, but ever since using the archzfs repo I didn't have to do this anymore. Anyway, I will do a manual update first then. Thank you once again!

@Ruli that is typical with this package. The reason is because of a dependency on a specific linux version. I don't know the reason for the specific linux version but I assume it is for a good reason. I think there has been some work on automating the new releases when new linux kernels comes out but I'm not sure about the details.

Someone please correct me where I am wrong.

Hi, when I tried to do pacman -Syu today, I got the following message:

resolving dependencies... warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux-headers" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "spl-linux" warning: cannot resolve "linux=5.0.10.arch1-1", a dependency of "zfs-linux-headers" :: The following packages cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies: spl-linux spl-linux-headers zfs-linux zfs-linux-headers

Is anyone else seeing this as well? Thanks in advance!

Dependency zfs-utils-common is missing. So package couldn't be compiled

Hi everyone, as you might know: I'm the new Maintainer of archzfs ( As soon as I get access to the domain, I will update all packages. I've implemented an automated build system to help update packages faster in the future. The new gpg key for the repo is F75D9D76 ArchZFS Bot <>. If you are using the archzfs repo, you will need to add this key to pacman's trusted key list.

pacman-key -r F75D9D76
pacman-key --lsign-key F75D9D76

Edit: Packages are now up to date on The temporary domain is no longer needed

I'm not the person, to answer that. But what I read here:

sounds very positive. There is even a temporary domain set up now. Read yourself there.

I'm aware of the maintainer change, but will this package get an update in the near future or is the dkms version the way to go now?
