Please update the source array from:

source=("${_url}/${pkgname}-${_pkgver}/${pkgname}.iso" ...


source=("${pkgname}-${_pkgver}.iso::${_url}/${pkgname}-${_pkgver}/${pkgname}.iso" ...

That saves the source files with version in filename and makes sure new versions are downloaded properly.

Thanks jetm, I was using pacaur. Removing the previous binaries solved the issue.

I could reproduce this issue by using pacaur, but I could solve it. If pacaur is used, remove the previous binary files under ~/.cache/virtio-win directory and build again:

rm -rf /home/javier/.cache/pacaur/virtio-win
pacaur -S virtio-win

Delete those files in your build folder so they get downloaded again. Yaourt works because it doesn't save anything.

Hello gps1539, I installed with yaourt and I didn't got this error. What are you using for AUR to install virtio-win?

@TingPing: Thanks for the feedback. I will remove the install file for next virtio-win release.

You should probably remove the install file; It does nothing of use and it just adds extra work on users to audit each update. Surely they know how to use their package manager to see what files a package contains.
