Problem updating Electron4 using yay

I tried to update electron4 recently and got this error message:

==> Starting build()…
ERROR at //printing/BUILD.gn:149:22: Script returned non-zero exit code.
cups_version = exec_script(“cups_config_helper.py”,

stderr:

SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to ‘print’. Did you mean print(‘cups-config not found: %s’ % cups_config)?

See //BUILD.gn:143:7: which caused the file to be included.

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

error making: electron4

I didn’t find any info about this so I am quite confused.

an error somewhere because it’s python2 that should be used and not python(3)

This package is orphan: so no more maintainer

you can install electron4-bin
