Hi @cvelteren, microtype.sty is provided as part of the texlive-core package... you should have this already installed if you are using TexLive. Did you manually install TexLive? Could you expand on what it is you are doing exactly?

cvelteren commented on 2020-11-06 13:29

@hv15 microtype I ended up manually copying the sty into the packages to get it to work.

@cvelteren, what CTAN package are you trying to install?

I have the same issue as @phenethylamin and @h30x;

Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 418, <STDIN> line 1.

How to fix?

Hi @BigfootLives, I'm unable to reproduce the problem. From the error message, it looks like the pkgver() function in the PKGBUILD file is empty (?!). Is it possible that you have aliases setup for the git command?

@h30x it's exactly the same problem as with @phenethylamin, :P

From the CTAN upgreek package: This package is part of the was bundle, meaning that you can't download it via tllocalmgr. Using pacman -Fyx was/upgreek.sty I get:

usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/was/upgreek.sty is owned by extra/texlive-latexextra 2020.55418-1

I hope that helps!

@hv15 I have the same problem as @phenethylamin

Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 418.

but with the upgreek package, which is present on CTAN ( I do not understand how I sould fix it.

@hv15 as I've said ... I don't think this is a particular issue only for texlive-most-doc package, for example, in my laptop I haven't got installed texlive-most-doc but I've got a similar message, this time talking about /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/texlive-slashbox_1993.05.27-1.pkgs (which is related with texlive-slashbox, and I've got installed the package) but that file is not present in /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/ folder.

EDIT: After remove texlive-slashbox from my laptop tllocalmgr worked as expected. So maybe it has something to do with if a particular package includes the *.pkgs file maybe we should report this to texlive-most-doc and texlive-slashbox maintainers.

hv15 commented on 2020-09-02 11:05

@jfernandz exactly, I think the maintainer/packager of texlive-most-doc needs to add this to the package. Potentially I could change tllocalmgr to ignore such problems, but it kinda goes against the design... we dealing with a package manager which needs to know the state of packages already installed on the system, otherwise bad things can happen when install/updating packages through it.
