An App Not Updating With yay

I just had something I haven’t seen before.
I installed an app, went fine, but it indicated there is an update.
Running yay -Syu and even yay -Syyu updated everything but this specific app still says there is an update.
The app is portfolio
So I did yay -Syu portfolio

I noticed during installation and update it is downloading lots of files from other websites eg:

[INFO] Fetching org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_64.nl_ru_4.22.0.v20211218020001.jar from (1.57kB)
[INFO] Fetching from (1.49kB)
[INFO] Fetching from (1.48kB)
[INFO] Fetching org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_64_1.2.400.v20211117-0650.jar from (132.48kB)

Is this is why it does not update with yay -Syyu but it does with yay -Syu portfolio?
I don’t understand what is the difference.

I still see it mentioning there is an update that needs to be downloaded!
Thanks for any inputs. There is still a lot to learn I see.

The Portfolio AUR package is flagged out of date. There is a new version of the app available on github, but the maintainer has not updated the pkgbuild script yet.
When you run yay -Syu portfolio the old version just gets reinstalled.


Thanks a lot @klv
I noticed this when I did yay portfolio
This explains everything.
Thank you.
Just to update you. Now it is updating normally as expected. But it is taking ages downloading lots of stuff!
