ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I tried to update my package phpunit but it failed during source files validation.

==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
    phpunit-9.2.2.phar ... Passed
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
error downloading sources: phpunit

At its AUR page I’ve learned it should be easy to resolve if I clean the cache first. What would be the recommended way to do in general, for similar situations? I tried with pamac clean but it didn’t help.

Seems the sha512sum is wrong… as workaround replace the second long number with SKIP in the PKGBUILD. It is the license anyway.

It is already reported: AUR (en) - phpunit
