Been using Zoom for a couple of years now, installed from the AUR via pamac. Quite a few updates have happened without issue. However, the current update is not processing, with the following error:
Building zoom... ==> Making package: zoom 5.11.9-1 (Sun 28 Aug 2022 12:37:56 PM EDT) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... -> Found zoom-220.127.116.1100_orig_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz ==> Validating source files with sha512sums... zoom-18.104.22.16800_orig_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! Failed to build zoom
Looking at the PKGBUILD, this is a very simple install, it just downloads and installs the binaries from
https://cdn.zoom.us/prod/22.214.171.12400/zoom_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz. If I look at
/var/tmp/pamac-build-<username>/zoom/zoom-126.96.36.19900_orig_x86_64.pkg.tar.xz, sure enough its sha512sum doesn’t match the one given in the PKGBUILD file.
HOWEVER, if I download the file directly with
curl, the sha512sum matches!
I’ve contacted the package maintainer and he cannot reproduce the error. What’s going on? Is there something wrong with my
makepkg install? As far as I can tell,
pamac just calls
makepkg, which just calls
curl. I can’t fathom how the file gets changed!
Please help with ideas for further testing or any other suggestions.
