Anyone having issues installing the aur/electron24 update?

Screenshot_20240208_133923

i’ve been seeing this package recently when typing ‘yay’ in the terminal and for whatever reason, it takes close to an hour to go through the installation process and it never seems to actually install. i’m not receiving any messages about the package failing to install, so i’m a little confused.

anyone else experiencing this?

That is because it left the repo. Since it fell to AUR, you are compiling it from source so it will take a long time.

First you should see if you can just remove it. If nothing depends on it, you don’t need it anymore.

Try sudo pacman -R electron24

If that works, you are good.

If you still have some old software that depends on it and the removal fails, you can install electron24-bin which will install faster.
