Hi @nuc, the reason is that this package downloads blender's current daily build. So if you install the package on 2019-03-03, you get the version . But I am updating the package version in AUR every month only. So the downloaded version is always newer (except for one day). My thought is to avoid too frequent package updates with that method while manually updating to the daily version is still possible.

Everytime when updating I get:

-> blender-2.8-bin: local (2.80.190303.ae977d13f8e9-1) is newer than AUR (2.80.190301.795effcbc815-1)

How can my version be newer?

Thanks @fox-beta and @omgold for sharing information. @omgold your idea sounds very good to me. I updated the PKGBUILD with your method to avoid the hash and as an aside avoid the http redirection.

I still get the download error below. Seems curl doesn't like the '#' in output filenames. It can be fixed by explicitly giving a filename, like this:


The name needs to be replaced in the _setvars() function also, of course.

Updated again last night and did receive an error on the first attempt, but after a few tries it downloaded. Does seem a bit random.

Trying just now it worked fine (on Manjaro, using yaourt -u blender-2.8-bin).

Thanks, by the way, for maintaining adabru. I used the 2.8-git until it stopped compiling so am happy to get Blender working again.

When I do makepkg or yay -S blender-2.8-bin from zsh, I'm not getting any errors. But I guess I had the same issue a month ago and it resolved automatically by trying out later. Don't know what the cause is. I'm glad you got it working.

curl -L

It does show the download page.

Upon further testing and reading, setting _inc to nothing will download it and proceed as normal.

I believe it may be because of the "#", it's causing issues with zsh. If I try it under bash it works fine.

adabru commented on 2019-02-07 05:52

@notfood could you try replacing the line




and the other occurences of download#$_inc with \#$_inc?

and say whether the command curl -L succeeds for you?

notfood commented on 2019-02-07 05:35

I'm getting:

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

Which of course doesn't exist. I deleted the cache, tried changing that number for pkgver. No success.
