Unable to install pacnew-chaser from AUR

Wanted to install the pacnew-chaser from the AUR today. Pamac (AUR support in Pamac is enabled), had found nothing. Try with yay, error message, can not be installed. When I search in the Pamac for other software from the AUR (deadbeef), I also get nothing. Did they lock us out?

It would help, if you included that error message in your post…

You’re missing the base-devel group which is required for using the AUR. See Arch User Repository - Manjaro

This is a fresh Manjaro installation, why is something so basic missing here? And how do I install this?

It’s just basic to using the AUR.
The use of which is not part of a standard Manjaro installation.

Strange, then apparently it was before, because I’ve never had to reinstall it.

and what???

sudo pacman -S base-devel                                                                            ✔

Geben Sie eine Auswahl ein (Voreinstellung=alle):

once you have installed the base-devel group
you never need to worry about it again
But this is only needed if you want to use packages from the AUR.
… and the use of the AUR is not part of the initial, standard Manjaro installation.

the whole group - all of those

is part of the binutils package
which is not part of a standard installation

the binutils package is among those in the base-devel group

… sorry - I had to edit this quite heavily because of me misinterpreting things in my checking procedure
