I did as you suggested and collected 211Mb of updates!! These were all held up because the kalu script would no longer work. I wonder if in future the ‘techies’ could include a warning when software is about to be dropped. Kalu was convenient… but I can work around it if I am warned.
I don’t mean to come off like a preacher in a pulpit giving a sermon, but…
Just use pacman. pacman is maintained by the Arch developers and they thoroughly test it before release. Because of that, pacman just works. From the Arch Linux AUR home page
DISCLAIMER: AUR packages are user produced content. Any use of the provided files is at your own risk.
It is the goal of the EndeavourOS developers to use as few AUR packages as possible in the ISO.
Try to avoid using the AUR. If you must use the AUR, learn how to use makepkg and PGKBUILDS to install AUR packages. You will never be left high and dry by a pacman/AUR helper.
https://forum.endeavouros.com/c/anouncements was warning you on this
As kalu was not a package from Archrepo itself there was no official warning on archnews for it… so best is to read the news here and at Archlinux to be informed on stuff like this.
May we can add a feature to the newly created EndeavourOS-update-notifier @manuel just created for us.
