• \[SOLVED\] package-query 1.5.2 - 64bit only & broken


    Dear devs,

    lately, it’s no longer possible to upgrade i686 systems from antergos repos, in particular “antergos/package-query 1.5-1 1 -> 2”

    # file /usr/bin/package-query
    /usr/bin/package-query: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=2be3a4c40e85cb2f734d45b495656e13bb9bc807, stripped

    while on amd64 systems, after upgrading, package-query produces an error:
    “package-query: error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”

    # pkgfile libalpm.so.8
    core/pacman
    # pacman -Q pacman
    pacman 4.2.0-5


    The solution was to wait a day for the newer version to appear in AUR.

  • I had the same issue. I solved with:
    Upgrading pacman db:

      
    Uninstalling yaourt and package-query:  
    sudo pacman -R yaourt package-query
    

    Updating my system using pacman:

    sudo pacman -Syu
    

    Downloading/compiling manually the last version of package-query:

    cd /tmp  
    curl -O https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pa/package-query/package-query.tar.gz  
    tar zxvf package-query.tar.gz  
    cd package-query  
    makepkg -si  
    cd ..
    

    Installing yaourt from pacman:

    sudo pacman -S yaourt
    

    Finally you can write:

    yaourt -Syua
