I solve the issue like this:

$ sudo pacman -Rn yaourt package-query

$ sudo pacman -S fakeroot

$ curl -o pkgconfig.tgz

$ tar -zxf pkgconfig.tgz

$ cd pkg-config-0.29.2

$ ./configure --with-internal-glib && make install

$ git clone

$ cd package-query

$ makepkg -si

$ sudo pacman -S yaourt

...and solved! ;-)

I get the same error 'package-query: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory' when I run: yaourt -Syua I tried to follow your advice cloning de git repo and also downloading the tar.gz but I get the following error: configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables alpm_CFLAGS and alpm_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <>. See `config.log' for more details

What can I do to fix it? Thank you in advance.

@f2404 Yes, it is the same as when I look at View PKGBUILD..

@aleksandar2810 That's very weird, works fine here. Can you confirm that PKGBUILD that you've downloaded looks similar to the one that is shown here, in the web interface?

When I try to reinstall it manually I get:

==> ERROR: arch should be an array

I didn't change anything, just cloned git URL and ran makepkg. Thanks!

if you use makepkg -i you can skip the last step :)

Four simple steps to instal manually:


$ git clone

$ cd package-query

$ makepkg

$ sudo pacman -U package-query-1.9-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

curl -L -O OR wget to download the package

Reinstall package query manually. It looks like both yaourt and package query is not available in the repository.

Download snapshot with wget. $ wget download_link

Extract $ tar -xvf package-query.tar.gz

Change directory $ cd package-query

Install with dependencies $ makepkg -s

After compilation is finished, install with pacman. $ sudo pacman -U package-query*.xz
