How can i fix makepkg saying it can cause damage to system?

[finn@finn-p71207c minecraft-launcher]$ sudo makepkg -si
[sudo] password for finn:
==> ERROR: Running makepkg as root is not allowed as it can cause permanent,
catastrophic damage to your system.
[finn@finn-p71207c minecraft-launcher]$

the problem is exactly as the errors say. Use either makepkg -si or pamac build minecraft-launcher to utilize pamac.



makepkg -si

No need to use sudo when it is not needed.

Classic XY Problem. Please tell us what problem you were having before you incorrectly tried to use sudo with makepkg.
