Could one of you (who is having the issue re checksums - and as pythoneer mentioned: retrieving the wrong file) test removing any yay cached download by deleting the ~./.cache/yay/postman-bin folder and try install via yay again?


rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/postman-bin

yay -S postman-bin

Cheers, Jay.

Thanks pythoneer. Canary builds designed for early adopters - seems it's downloading a canary build instead - which is whack (shouldn't happen). I'm trying to understand why that happens when the download link should explicitly be

I am having the same problem with the md5sum of bfebe8d41369d074cbef60ce04ee8ddc . i have uploaded the file from my cache here

downloading the file directly from my browser is getting me the "correct" file and md5sum.

I have binary compared the *.tar.gz files (cmp command) and they are in fact different. i extracted both and the one from the aur differs in the overall extracted top folder and the executable file name. In the archive directly downloaded from the website the top folder is called "Postman" and the executable is called "Postman" whereas the top folder from the aur is called "PostmanCanary" and the executable is called "PostmanCanary".

That was the immediate difference i have noticed without investigating the binaries further – i think the aur script somehow downloads a "canary" version of Postman?

Thanks all for the feedback. This is very strange - md5sum for file download should be b5dcca9c97c0dbc06e0ae1e0507d772f (which differs from the download file you are getting). Only thing I can think of is if postman is using a CDN or something for the download and nodes haven't been synced?

Same problem as @lfkeitel , with the md5sum bfebe8d41369d074cbef60ce04ee8ddc

Interestingly, I am receiving the same md5sum that Ifkeitel for postman-bin and as a result I'm getting the validity check error. Postman.desktop file is fine. I tried to install it with yay and trizen and got the same error.

No probs. Try again (if haven't already done so) - could have been an issue with the download at the time.

I was using Yay but I guess it's something with my machine. I tested on a different machine and it installed fine. Sorry, I should have waited before I made my comment.

Hey lfkeitel, just confirmed md5 is correct. Also did a test / install with yay (.e.g: yay -S postman-bin) and builds and install fine. How are you installing? (e.g. yay, another aur-helper, or makepkg etc.)?

lfkeitel commented on 2020-02-07 22:49

I think the md5 sum is wrong. When I download the file I get a sum of bfebe8d41369d074cbef60ce04ee8ddc and I get an error that validation fails.
