I have updated it to 7.1.3

After numerous attempts at making a downloader for their obviously intentionally complicated cookie stuff, I decided to host the file on IPFS.

Right now the file has the ipfs ref QmSxr3yEsgP5JvnpyNtb7dfcvCJgqoxh7sDWV2fjPs8ZkZ if anyone would like to assist in hosting it.

I am working on updating this now that I own it.

Does it autoupdate properly after the initial install or needs to be updated via AUR?. Thanks!

I keep getting this error curl: (3) Illegal characters found in URL ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading -> Could not get the download token, '_retoken' might need an update

Don't know if it's relevant but I use zsh

changing the download file in the pkgbuild to "" solves the issue

It seems that _gettoken() is no longer working. I'm receiving: " -> Could not get the download token, '_retoken' might need an update"

I modified the current files with Larivact's suggestions (except 4.) and did some other minor changes:

Fedora should be more up-to-date than RHEL or CentOS. RHEL 7 doesn't support 32-bit installations by the way.

Some suggestions:
1) Change the Upstream URL to as appears to be down.
2) Change the description to: "A proprietary vulnerability scanner available free of charge for personal use."
3) Since the curl to fetch the token is silent, echo "fetching token" before invoking _gettoken, so that users aren't confused if the site takes to load.
4) post_install should mention /opt/nessus/sbin/nessuscli
5) post_remove should echo "You might want to remove the remaining files in /opt/nessus/."
