Quick work around:

  1. Download "Nessus-8.3.1-fc20.x86_64.rpm" from here. MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THIS EXACT PACKAGE: https://www.tenable.com/downloads/nessus

  2. Make a new folder and put the RPM file in the new folder

  3. Use python to spin up a quick web server to serve the file from the above folder:

If you have python2.7 installed use this

python -m SimpleHTTPServer

If you have python3 installed use this

python -m http.server
  1. In a web browser navigate to:
http://localhost:8000

You should see a directory listing of the folder you created with a link for the RPM to download it.

  1. Back in the terminal run the yaourt -S nessus command to start the Nessus install, and edit as below the PKGBUILD:

So this line:

source=("Nessus-${pkgver}-fc20.x86_64.rpm::http://101s.nappy.link/files/302GMRUTGq2pchPBvU/Nessus-8.3.1-fc20.x86_64.rpm"

Change to this:

source=("http://localhost:8000/Nessus-8.3.1-fc20.x86_64.rpm"
  1. Save and exit, continue as normal with the installation. Don't forget to the kill the python web server.

I changed of file hoster and direct download link provider, you should now have unlimited download speed and not daily quota.

@larrybowgensloth Please do not use this form (out of date flag) to report bugs. Use the package comments instead. Also see the pinned comment.

curl: (92) HTTP/2 stream 0 was not closed cleanly: PROTOCOL_ERROR (err 1) ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading https://od.lk/d/OTBfMTc3MDIzMDlf/Nessus-8.2.3-fc20.x86_64.rpm Aborting...

Bandwidth limit has exceeded there is a 1GB daily download limit. If you have a better free host with direct link tell me.

Instead of using a hosting service, which is not even safe or transparent, have people download the file from tenable.

If you read the PKGBUILD, I wrote:

# Note: I had to use a file hoster because Tenable doesn't provide a direct link.

Previous maintainer already tried to make a direct download from Tenable website without success. I you find a way tell me.
