@cfr42 the version in filename is in order to avoid issues once the file is downloaded, if a new version arrives makepkg does not try to re-download it if the file has the same name and it already exists. If the checksum fails then it means that there is a new version and it's necessary to change the PKGBUILD information.

Please flag it if that happens.

@frealgagu Any chance of considering FrederickZh's patch?

I just learned that python-gobject is a dependency. If it isn't installed, you get this:

Starting Dropbox...Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/dropbox-cli", line 1450, in start
  File "/usr/bin/dropbox-cli", line 295, in download
    gi.require_version('Gdk', '3.0')
AttributeError: module 'gi' has no attribute 'require_version'

After installing python-gobject, dropbox-cli works just fine.

@frealgagu I'm using aurutils. The command I run almost every day is:

aur sync -u --no-confirm --no-view

@miguelmsoler What AUR helper are you using? The checksum you suggest is the previous version of the file, but it was recently changed.

the file was modified in July 10th. I think your helper didn't redownload the file and you have an outdated version of it.

Hi, I just tried to update and got this error:

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I fixed it after changing sha256sum to e34817eb1949308054ec79454ff77062037526e69ba56957aac37aeadc796e89 in PKGBUILD.

Is it worth the effort to patch this CLI tool somewhat like @thiagowfx suggested so that dropbox-cli version can work with

@ahnafalrafi no, if you download the file you will notice that the script is for version 2019.02.14 so the version of file is not for upload date else for version that appears into the file.
