I'm using pamac on manjaro. Clearing AUR build directory and cache then reinstalling did the trick.

Hello @ggil

This mean you are not deleting the deb file before you do a new build and therefore not using the latest version.

Check the version of the DEB file you have using dpkg and confirm it's the latest version like below.

It will be better if you use an AUR helper like yay it will automate the process for you.

 dpkg-deb -I workspacesclient_amd64.deb

I was able to get the package to build by substituting in the previous sha512 sum in PKGBUILD.





But then Amazon Workspaces reports that it is still version Maybe something still sitting in cache.

I have the same error as @Pete.

Here's the PKGBUILD contents:

# Maintainer: Asem Arafa <asem.arafa at gmail dot com>

pkgdesc='Amazon WorkSpaces Client'
depends=('gtk3' 'webkit2gtk' 'libsoup')
options=('!strip' 'staticlibs')
package() {
    cd "$srcdir"
    tar axfv data.tar.xz -C "${pkgdir}"

Same as under View PKGBUILD.

Hello @Pete

Are you sure you are using the latest PKGBUILD? All seems ok from my end

Unfortunately the build seems broken at the moment:
