Octopi stopped working with error

Octopi fails to start. When started from the command line the following message is displayed

 Aborting octopi as 'checkupdates' binary could not be found! ["/usr/bin/checkupdates" ]

I ran

 sudo pacman -Qo checkupdates

No joy. Any recommendations and suggestions?

Moderator edit: In the future, please use proper formatting: [HowTo] Post command output and file content as formatted text

checkupdates is now provided by pacman-contrib. Do you have that installed?

Well that would show which package owns something … if it existed.

If you wanted to search for something you might use something like

sudo pacman -Fyx 'bin/checkupdates'


For how to format etc see this

It also means octopi package needs some changes. @Yochanan
