Hi @ziesim,

Have a look here: Megasync failed to install

Quoting @Yochanan from there:

You’ll have to either wait until icu 69 hits the stable branch or switch to the unstable branch before updating Megasync.

Although I doubt it, I hope this helps.

Thank you for the fast answers. So i have to wait for icu69 update.

I did a “sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/”, for now, till megasync was updated. ICU was updated to 69.1-1 and was a dependency of megasync.

@servimo I found your tipp in arch aur forum. But this command doesnt work for me. I get the following error:

ln: the symbolic link '/usr/lib/' could not be created: the file already exists

i’ve installed the version from the mega homepage. this is the version from the .deb-packages. This gave me the error.

Now i tried the megasync-git and dolphin-megasync-git from aur and now i don’t get errors :slight_smile:

Thank you all for the fast answers


I know you’ve sorted it but I have had several problems in the past trying to update megasync due to missing/out of
Sync depencies. I switched to the megasync-bin from the aur and have never had an issues with that package

I made this link because I don’t wanted to recompile.
As posted somewhere in this thread now it needs version 69 of ICU, at this weekend I will recompile Megasync.
