Update: target not found

This problem brings me to new problem: GUI update always show “target not found: PACKAGENAME” for all software (but console command in solution of mentioned topic is working)

Moderator edit: Useless screenshot and a copy of an AUR PKGBUILD removed

sudo pkgfile -u && pamac build yay-git

Result of run:

Checking yay-git dependencies...
cp: cannot create regular file '/var/tmp/pamac/dbs/sync/pamac_aur.db': Permission denied
Error: Failed to prepare transaction: target not found: yay-git

What is the output of… :arrow_down:

ls -l /var/tmp/pamac/dbs/sync/

… and… :arrow_down:

ls -l /var/tmp/pamac/dbs


P.S.: Why are you not using the yay from the Extra repository, or even if you need the AUR version, yay-bin?

I just to want to make working this via GUI, that appear everyday in icon tray and reports about existing updates.

Try this… :arrow_down:

sudo chmod 777 /var/tmp/pamac/dbs/sync

On my system, it is world-writable. I don’t know whether it’s supposed to work like that, but pamac has been having issues for a long time now, and I personally recommend against using it unless you know what you’re doing. :man_shrugging:

I think this and similar posts are probably a symptom of sudo pamac ...
