If you're seeing the message "Daemon is unreachable, is systemd running?", then one of two things is probably happening.

The nordvpn daemon might not be started
Start it using:
sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd

You might not have been added to the nordvpn group
Add yourself:
sudo gpasswd -a USERNAME nordvpn
And then restart in order for the group to be created:

I accidentally deleted, my previous comment, so reposting... DIY patch, change the appropriate PKGBUILD lines to:

@cradcore Yep. This package is almost always late on updates, which is particularly bad for a relatively popular networking security app. There doesn't seem to be a consistent maintainer for the package either, judging by the multiple users listed above. Sigh, it's stuff like this (and the increasing number of broken updates on other packages,) that sometimes has me thinking about going back to an apt-based distro. I love most things about ARCH, but the AUR is a real mixed bag. Oh well, I should probably shut up, as I have nothing useful to add.

This has been flagged out of date for some time now...When will it be updated?

Manjaro Arm64

Failed to prepare transaction: could not find or read package

I downloaded the screenshot and did makepkg but it doesn't even create a installable package which might be the issue or part of it.

@speedytux, the one linked on the website is nearly 2 years old.

Is this deb package the same offered on the NordVPN website? That one has the 1.0.0 release version and this one 3.8.9. Would you clarify?

sylvite commented on 2020-12-29 15:59

I've had the same issue as @Zeros with all 3.8.x releases for the past several months, including the recent ones with group-related issues. I've been reverting back to 3.7.4 for quite a while, after attempting to update after every new 3.8.x release. I'm still able to connect fine with 3.7.4 today.

I just today found this post. Disabling the killswitch before connecting, I've finally been able to connect with 3.8.9-- the first time I've been able to connect with any 3.8.x release. (Re-enable killswitch after connecting.)
