pelican static site generator quickstart errors with version 4.5.0-1

Hello everybody.  When attempting to run `pelican-quickstart`, the command fails to generate the proper,,, and Makefile as expected.  Files are created, but they appear blank.  This error occurs when running with pelican installed via the community repo, though a prior version 4.2.0-2 from the repo appears to work as expected.  Does anyone know why this is?  Thanks in advance.

$ pelican-quickstart
...(after using various sane options)
Error: Makefile.jinja2

These errors do not occur when installing and running pelican (4.5.0) via pip in a python virtual environment...

Here is the diff in the PKGBUILD

Package maintainer here. Thank you for reporting!

This is indeed a packaging issue where the upstream is not complete,
so unfortunately jinja2 templates are not included in the final package.

I have uploaded a new pelican package 4.5.0-2 that should fix the issue.
I also created a PR to the upstream so that this problem will not happen again:
