Pamac finds aur package that is not in aur

Hi, I am encountering a weird pamac behavior: aur search returns package that apparently are not in the AUR. For instance, pamac search -a flox returns flox 0.60. However, going to AUR (en) - Packages, there is no flox package at all. Any clue?

Hi @callegar,

It sounds like your package list is out-of-date. Refresh it with:

pamac update --force-refresh

Hope this helps!

pamac outdated meta data on your system

This is an issue with pamac, it does not update the databases when using search.


Better clue would be to post actual response from terminal instead of a narrative response

If response from pamac search -a flox shows package is available from AUR

flox  0.60                                                             AUR

update AUR database as per previous posts

But response might show installed package no longer available from AUR

flox  0.60 [Installed]   

I have removed/replaced 2 similar ex-AUR packages recently

websearch for aur flox shows dead links to AUR and upstream
maybe this project is no longer beta ?
