I was trying to install a program from AUR. First, I tried using yay AUR helper but the an error appeared. then, I tried to install it manually and faced the same error again.

How to solve it?
I have never faced this type of error before while getting a program from AUR.
I have my whole system up-to-date.

What error?
Try also with paru and if not working i think you will have to enter a comment in AUR to ask for support...

It seems a check dependency is missing. Either install it before running the installation or edit the PKGBUILD and remove the check part of it.
