[SOLVED] Yaourt search/upgrade on AUR not working

Hello everyone,

I upgraded my system through a yaourt -Syua and decided not to upgrade one or two of my software. But when I wanted to upgrade them through a yaourt AUR search yaourt atom-beta (for example) it did nothing. I found on the internet almost the same issue as me and ran yaourt -Syu --devel --aur producing:

:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 multilib is up to date
 Foreign packages: - 22 / 22
==> upgrading SVN/CVS/HG/GIT package

Any AUR search I did with yaourt lead me to a list of packages on core, community, extra, or multilib but no AUR package.

Anyone has a clue about that?

Note: I did reinstall package-query and yaourt and reboot my system after the upgrade.

Same here from today, maybe yaourt needs to be updated?

Same here. Can't access any AUR package with any AUR helper.

Re: [SOLVED] Yaourt search/upgrade on AUR not working

Installing package-query-git fixed the issue for now.

i can confirm this issue here too. but i somehow don't want to use the package-query-git, as it seems to be older. i hope for a quick fix and update.

macstar3000, listed git version means nothing - the last, that is master, version will be installed. And, well, it resolves the issue for me also.

Wow I lost three hours of my life to find out why yaourt was not working and then I found this topic.
Thank you @hifi25nl !
