[SOLVED] Issue with aurutils: package replacing itself

Hi, I have just installed Arch on a new machine and decided to switch to aurutils (having used auracle for long time on the previous installation). I configured a local repository (named "custom") as suggested in the docs and managed to install all the packages I needed.
Among them, I installed wsk-git.

Now I am facing a strange issue, probably due to my lack of experience with the tool. Every time I run pacman -Syu, pacman says wsk-git can be replaced with itself. I tried removing and installing again that package, but nothing changes. I have installed that package (and all the others) using aur sync.

sudo pacman -Syu

Thanks for any suggestion

Re: [SOLVED] Issue with aurutils: package replacing itself

That happens because the PKGBUILD is wrong. A package should not conflict or replace itself.

Also the PKGBUILD has the git suffix but is not building using git or the head of any branch.

Thanks! I didn't consider the cause of the problem possibly being in the PKGBUILD. Sorry for the dumb question
