If you see something like this, the "error" is that AUR packages are not rebuilt when the system Python version is upgraded, which just happened again with 3.9. You need to manually upgrade each and every Python package from AUR, unfortunately. That is quite a caveat, because not everyone notices that something specific like Python is upgraded when they run pacman -Syu and see a list of 200 or more packages. This also happens with Node.js and what not.


So I have just bumped the package here as well as python-conda-build, which triggers updates with e.g. yay -Su. However, some dependencies may not have a new version now. What we could do for this case is to increase pkgrel for those other packages. It feels hacky, but at least it works.


I am sorry for the inconvenience. Now the remaining problem is: Because of the bunch of dependencies and dependencies of dependencies, it is easy to miss one of them. =) Secondly, I do not own all the dependencies, so some will need manual maintenance either way, unfortunately. For example, you will need to reinstall python-glob2-git. Please let us know here if anyone of you runs into issues and we will try to help.


To rebuild, you need to pass the --rebuild option.

Example: yay -S python-glob2-git --rebuild

What's the reason for depending on python-ruamel.yaml-hg?
python-ruamel.yaml is now in community:

The issue is now "fixed", using a "testing" installation as they mention it in ``. I hope this causes no other side-effects. Please let me know if this works for you now! :)

Seems conda wasn't installed using that commit. Listed the details here (

Sorry for this issue, and thanks to geno_whirl for pointing it out (see ). Upstream has made some changes which essentially doesn't create the binaries conda, activate and deactivate anymore. When you run the manually, you will see this message:
WARNING: Your current install method for conda only supports conda
as a python library. You are not installing a conda executable command
or activate/deactivate commands. If your intention is to install conda
as a standalone application, currently supported install methods include
the Anaconda installer and the miniconda installer.

This only affects you if you are using a POSIX shell like bash. If you run fish (like I do ;)), you will still be able to use conda. :)

To fix it, you can downgrade by running the following:
git clone ""
cd python-conda
git checkout 8e0dfd4c6621e5ad64d5debc2c2b743e3c452059
makepkg -i

That clones the git repo from AUR, checks out the commit with the older version v4.2.12-3, and builds and installs it.

please add `echo $pkgver > conda/.version` to python-conda-git too.

cyrevolt commented on 2016-11-30 19:42

I'm sorry, I had relics of an older build process present when I thought this little hack could be removed now. I readded the `echo $pkgver > conda/.version` to the build steps.

eigengrau commented on 2016-11-30 08:01

This currently fails to build for me, since for some reason conda fails to create the version string inside
