Re: [SOLVED]pikaur upgrade error

The output told you exactly what to do - or at least what pikaur thinks you should do.

My advice would be to not use a pacman wrapper and learn to manage your system properly.  Though if you do not read the output of commands, this would still not do you much good.

The maintainer says this:

AUR RPC reply changed today - unfortunately that would require rebuilding pikaur manually.

As another user posted in another thread, rebuilding pikaur seems to work. My approach:

cd /tmp
tar xvfz pikaur.tar.gz
cd pikaur
makepkg -s
sudo pacman -U pikaur-1.14.5-1-any.pkg.tar.zst
