I too got the failed sha512sum when updating the package with aurutils. When manually downloading and checking the package, there's no issue – the sha512sum matches.

I'd guess the issue is that the src is downloaded to a .tar.gz file which does not have a version number. makepkg seems to be happy when it finds an already existing src file and tries to use that instead of downloading the correct updated version. This of course leads to the mismatch in the hash.

If I remove the .tar.gz from aurutils' cache and rerun aur sync -u it works correctly.

I'm not sure whose fault it is. Should aurutils force makepkg to clean the cache before building? Or should the PKGBUILD always have version number in the source packages? Most other PKGBUILDs seem to keep the version number in the downloaded source files.

GI_Jack: I can't reproduce that error. I've fetched the archive a number of times to verify checksum matches the one in the PKGBUILD.

Version 38 is broken under gnome shell 3.34. New version 39 with fix is out.

This extension was broken by the Gnome 3.32 update. I see the developer has updated to v36 with fixes for this

Hoping our package maintainer can update for us. TIA!

It's caused by the filename of the source file being the same between different versions, preventing the download of the updated source file. I propose to add the pkgver to produce an unique filename (the filename is already unique at the upstream):

souvik1997: I can not reproduce the issue. The integrity check succeeds and the package builds successfully on my test boxes. Start with a clean build environment and try again.
