Package is not broken. You can't build this with yaourt or pamac. It must be built with makepkg after obtaining the fonts manually.

@spoon @orschiro definitely different package! I'm on vacation, and if nobody make it when I will be back I'll make it.

@spoon

I would say that should rather become a new package:

ttf-ms-win10

Looks like Windows 10 Technical Preview has new versions of fonts. Will this package be updated?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to install from a downloaded ISO at the moment, since you only get 9600.17050 from the Microsoft evaluation program. So the information in the PKGBUILD is wrong, stating that "You can acquire fonts either from an installed Windows 8.1 RTM system or install medium. Any edition of Windows 8.1 RTM build 6.3.9600.17050 will work." No, it doesn't. Obviously, you need .17238, but you won't get it as an ISO for now.

Okk so I took the fonts from a fully up-to-date Windows 8.1 (6.3.9600 build 9600.17238) VM and installed them. They all passed the integrity checks. Some fonts were updated
An update to the Arch Wiki, and we're good

Thanks everyone for the help and thanks reflexing for the update!

Thanks for the update! It works for me now.

Microsoft updated fonts, I updated package, so fonts from ISOs are old now and won't pass checksum checks. I just hasn't updated wiki page yet.

Not sure what's going on. A few days ago, I tried using the files from my installed Windows partition, and they failed the md5 check. I downloaded the Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO and extracted the fonts from them. These fonts passed the md5 check.
Today, the fonts from the ISO failed, and the fonts from my installed partition passed the check.
This is the filename of the ISO that I got by following the link on the wiki: 9600.17050.WINBLUE_REFRESH.140317-1640_X64FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IR3_CENA_X64FREE_EN-US_DV9.ISO

Sorry, but I'm stumped after this update.
Is there a new .iso from which I have to extract?
I'm using the Windows 8 fonts, but some fail the validation check, like palmaway said.
