The downgrade script does not yet have support for the new .zst package compression. It just doesn't find packages with that extension.

EDIT: fixed by my PR, will be merged on monday according to pbrisbin

Hi @brisbin33...

Both pacman -Qi and which showed gettext installed.

Re-installed gettext, that seemed to fix the problem.

Don't know if the recent changes to base had anything to do with it.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Hi merlock,

gettext is a package in the base and base-devel groups, which AUR package can assume is installed (i.e. it need not be in dependencies). Somehow you seem to either have lost that package, or something is off with your environment variables?

What does pacman -Qi gettext say? How about which gettext?

Haven't used it for a while, but this happened today:

Suddenly I have the same issue as reported by hotice, but my pacman.conf hasn't changed for months.

brisbin33 commented on 2019-08-19 13:00

Huh, that's weird and unexpected. I thought I was using curl -O (which downloads using the basename of the URL), which would be the full package-version-arch. Do you mind opening this as an Issue on the repository?

Would recommend setting a local download name for the source tarball [1]. v6.2.1.tar.gz in't very unique, and collides when makepkg is configured to use a downloads directory that is shared with other packages. Cheers

@nhw install pacman-contrib

hotice commented on 2018-07-14 15:04

oops, my bad. For some reason pacman.conf had its sections repeated 3 times! After deleting triplicates seems fine now, sorry!

brisbin33 commented on 2018-07-14 14:20

Hmm, doesn't look like an error in the command. Seems like it can't read your Pacman log. There could be a few reasons for this:

  • New Pacman is putting the file elsewhere
  • New Pacman is now storing the file 600
  • New Pacman is storing the file 640 and you're not in whatever group it is

(Or you're configured Pacman to do these things.)

What does sudo ls -l /var/log/pacman.log and sudo cat /etc/pacman.conf say?
