Re: Error when installing repo packages

Please see the warning from the top of AUR_helpers.  You are being asked if you can reproduce the issue without using the AUR helper yay.

Re: Error when installing repo packages

Well, yay's error message is misleading. It says "error installing repo packages" but what in fact fails is the built of a non repo package. As the other already said, try to build the failing packages without yay but with plain makepkg.

To get an update for

asciidoc-10.2.0-4, xmlto-0.0.28-4, meson-1.3.0-1

you could also try to run a simple pacman -Suy instead of yay.

Re: Error when installing repo packages

https://github.com/Jguer/yay/issues/2241

The takeaway is that AUR helpers get in your way more than anything else - don't use them, at least not the ones that try to wrap pacman.
Stuff like auracle or aurutils is typically fine.

Re: Error when installing repo packages

Well, my personal takeaway from this is: You types '-s' instead of '-S'.
And so did i when searching for this error message.

I do feel like this should happen frequently enough for people to know this on here but I mean I just joined to say this so how would I know.
And correct me if I'm wrong obviously but at least for me this was the only issue.

Re: Error when installing repo packages

The issue is

The yay bug wrote:

yay -s gets translated to yay -Ys which is not a valid yay operation.

that yay happily accepts a bogus parameter and continues to do … something?

I do feel like this should happen frequently enough

Searching google, there're a couple of threads in 2022 (unrelated to the error at hand, might have been local typos)
But usually people know the difference between capitals and minuscules, so no - not "frequently".
How does one even come up with that? Did you copypaste it from somewhere?
