Commit e01da1e449882ad8e4fe590b01cd09624b58143a removes the appengine components from this package. These components, along with all of the others, will be made available as independent packages in the future.

If you need any of the additional components for your day-to-day workflow, set "disable_updater": false in /opt/google-cloud-sdk/lib/googlecloudsdk/core/config.json and manage components using gcloud components <command>.

Be sure to install any dependencies for the additional components that you may need.

@chibby0ne, this is very likely an upstream issue, but I've filed it and will be following up on Github:

I've read the pinned comment from @sudoforge, and the comments from @oskar and @esbdb, but these assume that kubectl is installed.

I've just installed this package which is now in version 270.0.0-3, and it looks like it doesn't bring kubectl anymore but it still shows up as installed in the output of gcloud components list:

Your current Cloud SDK version is: 270.0.0

@bswartz thanks for catching that; python3 should have been an optdep.

bswartz commented on 2019-11-06 00:27

This package no longer builds. The error message is:

==> Starting package()...
Copying core SDK components
Running bootstrapping script
/home/arch/google-cloud-sdk/PKGBUILD: line 38: python2: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

sudoforge commented on 2019-09-18 12:05

Hey folks,

The PKGBUILD has been updated from 261.0.0 to 263.0.0. I apologize for skipping 262.0.0's release; I was out of town.

I'm in the process of working out how I want to automate these updates, since Google is a trusted source (at least in terms of package integrity). I currently use a mashed up shell script to do this for me, but it still needs to be manually invoked -- after it's completion, I create the commit and handle pushing to Github (the source of truth for the PKGBUILD) and then subtree the google-cloud-sdk directory out to the AUR.

I'll almost certainly have to do two things:

1) Stop signing the Git commits with my PGP key

2) Use a passwordless key to push to the AUR

1 is more or less unimportant, as I doubt anyone has workflows that rely on my key. 2 is more concerning, as it would mean that the machine I'm using to update the AUR package is able to hit the git server with a passwordless RSA key. To limit the attack vector to packages which have a "trusted upstream source" (like this one), I'll be adding a bot user as a co-maintainer. I may eventually remove my personal account from this package if this proves successful.

Let me know if:

  • Your workflow will break if my commits are no longer signed with my PGP key, or
  • Your workflow will break if the package owner changes

I have confirmed this regression and updated the pinned comment.

Brinox commented on 2019-01-27 10:54

The described mechanism of installing additional components by modifying the _additional_components variable does not work. The SDK installer just won't install the given components, because "disable_updater" is set to true. This seems to affect the bootstrap install, too.

sudoforge commented on 2019-01-15 09:03

@esbdb and @oskar - There has been a pinned comment with instructions for managing components since August 2018.

oskar commented on 2019-01-15 08:42

I wasn't able to update kubectl component either due to the following error:

ERROR: (gcloud.components.remove) You cannot perform this action because this Cloud SDK installation is managed by an external package manager. Please consider using a separate installation of the Cloud SDK created through the default mechanism described at: <>

I circumvented this by installing kubectl package from AUR (which is up-to-date) and removing /opt/google-cloud-sdk/bin/kubectl.

esbdb commented on 2018-10-30 06:56

How do I actually update installed components? I'm still running kubectl 1.7.2. Even when update gcloud, gcloud components update never gets run.
