Texlive-Full unable to complete install from AUR

I have been trying to install an update to texlive-full for several weeks. It needs to build from an AUR but the install never completes. It gets caught on the clean-up phase. This seems to mean that the install is complete but it does not exit. This also causes my system to lock-up as pacman eats up the resources. I cannot cancel as pacman is unresponsive (I need to use HTOP to kill it). The end of the log is below. Any thoughts on a solutions. FYI, trying to uninstall is amazingly complicated as there is a cascade of items that will need to be uninstalled.

Logfile: /tmp/install-tl-04061438.log

The following environment variables contain the string “tex”
(case-independent). If you’re doing anything but adding personal
directories to the system paths, they may well cause trouble somewhere
while running TeX. If you encounter problems, try unsetting them.

Please ignore spurious matches unrelated to TeX. (To omit this check,
set the environment variable TEXLIVE_INSTALL_ENV_NOCHECK.)

Hi @Oppyusa, and welcome!

In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Please also note and heed: Forum Rules - Manjaro

Hope you manage!

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Portaest sed
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.

Instead of like this:

Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

Please edit your post accordingly.

Why would you need to build it from AUR? Convenience?

Personally I don’t see the benefit of the AUR package in this case.

There is a meta package which provides all other packages

pacman doesn’t build AUR packages. You must mean pamac.
