2.36 is the first release with AppArmor enabled by default on Arch.

If you do not have AppArmor enabled at boot there should be no functional changes visible.

If you wish to use snaps with Apparmor, first make sure that Apparmor is enabled during boot, see for details. After upgrading the package, you need to do the following steps:

  • Reload the profiles: systemctl restart apparmor.service
  • Restart snapd: systemctl restart snapd.service
  • Load profiles for snaps: systemctl enable --now snapd.apparmor.service

This is flagged as out of date, however the fix is very simple.

Update the following lines

@bendavis78 builds fine in clean chroot, suggesting something in your system is most likely responsible for the problem. My rough guess is there's some tweaks in makepkg.conf that confuse the go link too.

The procedure is described in archwiki and has been linked to here many times. eg here:

@sighup_mae yes it is maintained. I did not see a reason to update as the changes in point releases were focused on Ubuntu Core. The 2.50 release brings some changes to the desktop, hence the package will be updated again. If you are eager to see an update each time the upstream creates a new tag, you are always welcome to send me a patch.

Are the maintainers still active? Package has been out-of-date for over a month now.
