Received this error upon upgrading:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
msbuild-stable: /usr/lib/mono/xbuild/Current/Microsoft.Common.props exists in filesystem

Appending --overwrite /usr/lib/mono/xbuild/Current/Microsoft.Common.props fixed this for me.

I've adopted the package and upgraded it to the latest version, which is 16.5.

Is there a reason why this package hasn't been updated since August 2019? VSCode's C# (OmniSharp) extension requires 16.3 or later, which at the moment is supplied by the msbuild-git package. At the moment there is 16.5 available from either Microsoft's GitHub repo or from the Mono project like from where it's sourced right now in the PKGBUILD.

Need to use 16.04 version instead of 18.04 to prevent depends problems :

The current version is 16.4 To update, change _pkgver=16.4+xamarinxplat.2019.

@PedroHLC, the whole thing is part of download URL for the binary so it has to be somewhere.

Also anyone who wants to update this package for themselfs edit the _pkgver to:


This is the newest version as of writing this.

This package should be called msbuild-16-bin

PedroHLC commented on 2019-07-05 15:54

does "_pkgver" has to be that long??

@globalenemy I have built the package with mono in Arch repos as well as with mono-alpha and mono-beta with no errors. I would recommend reinstalling your mono and trying again.
