rutorrent suddenly unable to add torrents

After an update and reboot (but without touching rtorrent or ruTorrent configuration) I am unable to add torrents via the ruTorrent interface.

I get the following message in the ruTorrent console:

[13.12.2019 05:24:02] WebUI started.
[13.12.2019 05:24:03] Webserver user doesn't have read/write/execute access to the torrents directory. You cannot add torrents via ruTorrent. (/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/share/torrents)
[13.12.2019 05:24:03] Webserver user doesn't have read/write/execute access to the settings directory. ruTorrent settings cannot be saved. (/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/share/settings)
[13.12.2019 05:24:03] ruTorrent cannot determine the UID of rTorrent user. Some functionality will be unavailable.

but /usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/share/torrents has user:group of http:http and has drwxrwxrwx permissions, so it's unclear why rutorrent is reporting permissions issues.

ErrorMessage FAQ at https://github.com/Novik/ruTorrent/wiki/ErrorMessages suggests that this error "most likely relate to incorrect ruTorrent installation. Say the archive has been unpacked not under a web-server user account." But this seems unlikely given that this is my same ruTorrent installation that I have used for some years.

Any suggestions on how to proceed to debug?

Re: rutorrent suddenly unable to add torrents

You should read the comments of AUR packages, most often issues will be noted and fixed posted there.

Mod note: Moving to AUR issues...

Re: rutorrent suddenly unable to add torrents

the issue mentioned on AUR (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rutorrent/) are pretty old, while this is an issue which appeared for me very recently.

and the fix suggested in the AUR comments doesn't help.

Re: rutorrent suddenly unable to add torrents

I have the same problem, I tried using rutorrent-git instead just in case but just had more errors, any solution in sight ?

I've just been "manually" adding via the terminal rtorrent interface, and then doing the rest of the management with rutorrent. Not ideal, but I can't figure out how to fix the issue.
