[SOLVED] pacman doesn't install and uninstall timeshift correctly

Hi,
I recently found out that timeshift in the AUR is very outdates. Because of this, I tried using my own PKGBUILD. Pacman doesn't install the package correctly and uninstalling it does nothing. Here is my PKGBUILD:

pkgname=timeshift
pkgver=20.11.1
pkgrel=1
url='https://github.com/teejee2008/timeshift'
arch=(x86_64)
source=(https://github.com/teejee2008/$pkgname/releases/tag/v$pkgver/${pkgname}_${pkgver}_amd64.deb)
pkgdesc='A backup and restore utility'
md5sums=('SKIP')
depends=('libgee' 'vte3')

I don't think I got all the depenencies required. I honestly don't know what the problem is. Help is very appreciated.

Where is the rest of the PKGBUILD?

That is the entire PKGBUILD. Is there supposed to be more?

Edit: I tried package() but I got an error that the deb file was not supported.

The PKGBUILD you posted is not the one from the AUR, and the AUR does in fact have the latest build, 20.11.1.

I remember it being flagged put of date for a very long time. I'll mark this post as solved. I'll use the one in the AUR instead.
