If you get a checksum error on FreeFileSync_xx.x_Source.zip, please try to download this file manually from https://freefilesync.org before building.

The host for the source URL is hostile towards direct downloads and will randomly output the wrong content. In my experience, retrying once or twice is enough to make it work (don't forget to delete the source archive first !).

Could anyone test the following line in place of the ffs source:

"FreeFileSync_${pkgver}_Source.zip::https://download2267.mediafire.com/rim0s6o05uig/165jyci3b3gp5xo/FreeFileSync_10.10_Source.zip"

@kemuzor @nipsky

I'm assuming you skipped the checksum?

I’m having trouble installing the current version:

Can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

Got an error using Manjaro installer to update freefilesync to version 10.9-1:

I used the workaround by downloading the snapshot, extracting it and using makepkg -sri for build and install. This worked fine. However I would appreciate if we can get the error fixed (which exits already for at least the last 3 or 4 freefilesync updates). - Thanks and regards

Indeed, tried 5-6 times. Finally succeeded. Thanks for help to all. Now 10.9 is installed (Manjaro KDE)

@symen the latest update could not pass validity check and failed upgrade/install.

symen commented on 2019-02-11 07:41

As usual some changes are needed to package v10.9. I am working on it: https://github.com/simonbru/aur-freefilesync/tree/dev

I looked at the bad file. It's a web page with "It looks like an ad blocker has blocked all the ads." After a couple of tries the actual file comes down.

symen commented on 2019-01-29 07:24

@jooch I have noticed that their counter measures are unpredictable.

In my case, it starts working after a few tries and after that it works every time. It is hard to find a reliable workaround when you have to get a fresh IP everytime you try something different.
