A package build is failing becuase of an error (see inside). Can someone help me fix it?

I’m trying to install mullvad-vpn from the AUR. After about 15 minutes of building, it spits outs the following error and I don’t know how to fix it.

I don’t believe my connection is through a proxy or anything like that.

Try installing mullvad-vpn-bin instead:

Thank you, that seemed to have worked.

Can you explain the difference between mullvad-vpn and the bin version? Searching in the aur there are so many versions and the arch wiki seems to suggest oinstall mullvad-vpn

AFAIK a -bin version is pre-compiled. Meaning it doesn’t have to compile on your machine.

Or that AFAIK anyway…
