Package from AUR gets higher version number after install

I installed the package libpdfium-nojs from the AUR since it was required by a different package. But after installation it got a new version number, and I get this message when I update the system using yay:

:: Searching AUR for updates...
 -> libpdfium-nojs: local (5304.r1.6d0a3d5365-1) is newer than AUR (5060.r1.558516c323-1)

I’ve installed other things from the AUR and never had any issues like this. It’s not really a problem since everything is working, but I would like to know why it happened and if it can be avoided.

This post explains why you are seeing a difference in version numbers.


Thank you. I suspected it was something along those lines.
