@flamusdiu it says this in the message :-)

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Could not link "/etc/localtime" ([Errno 13] Permission denied: '/etc/localtime'). Are you root?

A bit old: make sure you run "tzupdate" as root or run "tzupdate -p" as a normal user. If you attempt to run just "tzupdate" as a normal user it will error out (no checking if root before running the code).

@sumner The package may have been removed with a pip update. Try to install the aur package again. Otherwise you can manually run sudo pip install -U tzupdate

Does not work after upgrade to Python 3.7:

$ tzupdate
Traceback (most recent call last):

@justin8: Very true, thanks! I'll go fix that.

python-setuptools should be a dependency, not just a make dep, otherwise it errors out trying to find pkg_resources
