Cannot install plex-media-server (AUR) on fresh install of gnome version

So, it appears either the package is broken on the AUR (seems likely, since this is a fresh install), or there’s something else I’m missing when trying to instal ‘plex-media-server’.

Here’s what I get in terms of errors from the GUI:

Here’s the commandline output:

I can’t reproduce that. Try from the terminal:

pamac build plex-media-server

If it fails, please post the output.

I’m on Plasma and had no issue with it installing. Try updating your mirrors and system first, then try what Yochanan suggested.

sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack 5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

Actually, what ended up helping me is clearing temporary cache in the add/remove program
