Thank you for your maintenance @erkexzcx

Goddamit when I am about "aight' jellyfin finally became consistent time to automate pkgbuilds" and suddenly there are directory changes in their repo

# Before
# Now

I will continue to provide rc packages until first stable release and then only stable releases......

Awesome, thank both of you very much for your help. Greatly appreciated!

Good to know that nothing is lost with either suggested way. I guess yay's -d flag was what I was looking for. I also did try without yay, but again, I was missing the -d flag for pacman. Thanks for supporting this package!

@amo, you wont lose anything. Its how I updated. And as I said earlier, ">=$pkgver" is totally unnecessary (just causes problems). If you update your aur packages with any aur helper, all packages will be updated.

erkexzcx commented on 2021-01-14 08:21

@amo I see. Let's do a quick fix for you then:

yay -S --help | grep dep
  -d, --nodeps         skip dependency version checks (-dd to skip all checks)

so if I were you, I would just update jellyfin like this:

yay -S -dd jellyfin-server-bin jellyfin-web-bin

I believe yay can be safely replaced by trizen. If you are not using any AUR helpers, then just build packages of both jellyfin 'server' and 'web' and then force update using pacman -U -dd <package>.

Thank you @erkexzcx, but unfortunately it did not help yet. To me, it looks like the problem is with the installed jellyfin-server-bin 10.7.0~rc1 which depends on the web package =10.7.0~rc1 instead of >=10.7.0~rc1. Therefore, I guess that putting >= was a good idea.

I might actually just have to uninstall and reinstall the server package as @wioo suggested. But how would I make sure not to lose any settings, identifications, etc.? I am not quite sure how they are stored anyway. The DB is probably just a sqlite file sitting somewhere...?

IMO you dont need ">=$pkgver" because jellyfin-server-bin and jellyfin-web-bin are both updated when you update your aur packages.

erkexzcx commented on 2021-01-13 20:30

I've updated. It should update fine for you now. If it's still not updating - let me know. I will remove ">=$pkgver" part completely from the dependencies...

wioo commented on 2021-01-13 20:16

@amo One workaround would be to uninstall jellyfin-server-bin and then install it (it will pull current jellyfin-web-bin).

amo commented on 2021-01-13 13:06

I can't really update from RC1 to RC2 because of a dependency issue:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing jellyfin-web-bin (10.7.0~rc2-1) breaks dependency 'jellyfin-web-bin=10.7.0~rc1' required by jellyfin-server-bin

How can I work around this? And why does this happen in the first place when trying to update both jellyfin-server-bin and jellyfin-web-bin packages?
