[SOLVED] Error when installing YAY

While being in my home directory, I executed:

sudo pacman -S --needed git base-devel
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git
cd yay
makepkg -si

And got this output:

How can I fix it?

Re: [SOLVED] Error when installing YAY

This looks like an issue in the upstream source.  The maintainer has requested that all issues with yay itself go to the github issue tracker:

https://github.com/Jguer/yay/issues

EDIT: scratch that - I'm not able to replicate the problem here.  I did not let it run to completion, but the build went by that step smoothly.  Perhaps there is some go-specific configuration interfering: my build does not include the "pacman-git" parameter that is shown in your go command that fails.  Though the error message from 'go' seems quite unclear - it looks like it's actually saying there was an error in reporting the error!

Re: [SOLVED] Error when installing YAY

FWIW, I could not reproduce the issue either, but yay has just been updated 15 minutes ago, so try again?

So if you get that, I'd check

pacman -Qs pacman

Also

echo $SHELL

There seems to be some over-escaping in the error string (but that could be a red herring)
