Hey guys remember that this package is the -git version which means it is always updated with whatever is on the development branch.

So don't mark it as outdated

Can confirm that I'm also getting the "cannot stat build/Popcorn-Time/*" error, even after clearing the build cache etc.

@test0 Try a clean build. I.e. remove the popcorntime-git build cache, and try reinstalling.

If a clean build does not fix it, I'm afraid I'm not sure what the problem might be. You might want to open an issue on the official github page. I was getting an error similar to yours before the recent changes I made to the build process, and now it just works for me.

@FirstAirBender: build with success today, however I still get the start-up error.

FirstAirBender commented on 2020-11-17 19:16


This is happening because seems to be having trouble staying up. The problem is that the build fails because it is not able to download a file ( required for building the package, therefore it fails to produce a build directory, which is what we need in the package section of the build.

I'd say try again later today or sometime tomorrow. I honestly can't say how long it will take before the site is back up.

I am getting this while building the package:

cp: cannot stat 'build/Popcorn-Time/*': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

@test0 Please try again

@test0 Looks like the site ( is down right now, so I can't build it.

However that error looks like a display issue. In the meanwhile, you can report the issue on the github page, or try reinstalling the package (assuming is working again.

Due to the recent DMCA takedown, this package will be unusable for atleast another week.

Follow the discussion here:

After a week, I will update this page with further news (good/bad).

EDIT 13/05/2020

Nothing has changed

EDIT 24/05/2020
