If you face this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... yyyymmdd-firefox-xx.0a1.en-US.linux-${CARCH}.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355)

Please read this.

Short answer:

gpg --recv-key 0x61B7B526D98F0353

If you face this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... yyyymmdd-firefox-xx.0a1.en-US.linux-${CARCH}.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (bad signature from public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355)

Then just retry later (~1h), this is a CDN caching issue.

@NoSohoth the PKGBUILD is already updated.
I believe your issue is related to the source URL. Try instead of

Checksum are finally back, however the .asc and tarball don't match:

For some reason, I get the good .asc when I download it with firefox, but not with wget or makepkg.

Thanks for the updated PKGBUILD.
CHecksum removed in favor of signed tarball.

Checksum are indeed back, and the issue remains open only because it’s not fixed in aurora channel (just nightly one).

However, I would advise removing them altogether in favour of the signed tarball, checksum serve no purpose anymore then.

di72nn commented on 2017-02-10 22:06

No more hacks with manual checksum checks: there is a signature for the archive file.

P. S.: I didn't get into details, but the upstream issue is still open.

Looks like checksums are back, but format/lines changed and not -eq 2

@fightcookie for such scenario there is changeling:
It will work with any PKGBUILD that just needs rebuild to fetch new version (so like pretty much every *-git package)

And it gives you freedom to setup yourself how often package should be updated ;)

fightcookie commented on 2017-02-08 01:45

Could you consider bumping the version once a day, so we always get the latest nightly when updating? This isn't even a -git package, but a binary packge.

Also, the people, who only want to update manually and don't want notifications each day, can easily exclude the package by setting it on the ignore list for automatic updates!
This way, there is more information in the package for those of us who want to use that and don't want to set up a script for every packeg of this form with a different update rhythm (than daily).

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

Looks like the latest version (updated 2nd Feb) doesn't have the checksums up yet.

EDIT: My apologies. I did not realise that it was an upstream issue.

The checksums are not updated for some of the builds. Check for status.
