powerpill fails:

Status Legend:
(ERR):error occurred.

aria2 will resume download if the transfer is restarted.
If there are any errors, then see the log file. See '-l' option in help/man page for details.
PowerpillError: aria2c exited with 19

Name resolution for all mirrors fails: Could not contact DNS servers

What is wrong?

Edit: If I run aria2c with --async-dns=false it runs OK. How can I set that up on powerpill?

Edit no.2: I set --async-dns=false in /etc/powerpill/powerpill.json under aria2c args, it works now.

@Rumcajs Have you installed and rebuilt all of the dependencies since the upgrade to Python 3.9? Please read the previous comments below.

i get error : Traceback (most recent call last): File /usr/bin/powerpill, line 3, in <module> import Powerpill File /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/, line 43, in <module> import pm2ml ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pm2ml'

@Tanath All of the dependencies with Python modules must be rebuilt against the latest version of Python 3.

I also provide built packages in my repo that you can upgrade directly with pacman if you don't want to worry about rebuilding them yourself:

I was also getting

/usr/bin/python3: No module named Powerpill

Rebuilding didn't change anything at first, but I tried a clean build and then I got:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/", line 197, in _run_module_as_main
    return _run_code(code, main_globals, None,
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/", line 87, in _run_code
    exec(code, run_globals)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/", line 43, in <module>
    import pm2ml
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/", line 35, in <module>
    import XCGF
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'XCGF'

The fix was to rebuild the following as well: python3-xcgf python3-xcpf python3-memoizedb

@homocomputeris Try rebuild powerpill and all its AUR packages against python 3.9. This works for me. Although these AUR packages have already been bumped to an increase version number, so I think just do a normal update should automatically fix this for you.

An error appears in 2020-1:

$ powerpill
/usr/bin/python3: No module named Powerpill
