This is resolved. I have a script that updates the PKGBUILD for me. The brave team changed the naming convention of their releases and my script did not catch it.

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

I went to Brave's github page and there are no releases for there is one for so I edited the pkgbuild to grab the symbols file however I get a SHA512 validity check failure when it tries to build Brave again.

Sorry if this comment is not helpful this is legit my first time commenting on AUR and I am fairly new to AUR.

The latest release doesn't have LICENSE or LICENSES.chromium.html in the .zip and installing caused this error:

mv: cannot stat '/home/joe/.cache/yay/brave-beta-bin/pkg/brave-beta-bin/usr/lib/brave-beta-bin/LICENSE': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat '/home/joe/.cache/yay/brave-beta-bin/pkg/brave-beta-bin/usr/lib/brave-beta-bin/LICENSES.chromium.html': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Error making: brave-beta-bin

This was resolved by removing line 48 from the PKGBUILD.

This package is set to conflict with itself and cannot be installed using pacaur:

I'm not sure what happened with the Github api, but it returned the wrong version number a few days ago. If you receive an error stating that a newer version is already installed, just uninstall then reinstall this package.

The dependencies have been updated

Anonymous comment on 2020-01-03 17:02

gconf is an obsolete configuration database system. Brave does not have this dependency.

Does this package really depend on libgnome-keyring? I see a lot of other packages has replaced this dependency with org.freedesktop.secrets now (which gnome-keyring provides). This is also true when comparing to the package 'brave' here in aur.

The License has been updated. If your files do not pass the validity check, clear the aur helper cache and try again.

The LICENSE file was updated on November 4th in the Brave Github repository. See

The new checksum is 239dbc27d68e0a03e92c68fb746602d8183084c9624a533fe92a991b8a4658d5154c901ff64826992eabcf89a5b52cb32f9cf29fd25a42bef2b5d3932010d806
