Recently, I went to update proton--ge-custom and got the following message:
error: can't build python-fontpens-0.2.4-3, deps not satisfied: python-fontparts error: can't build python-fontparts-0.10.8-1, deps not satisfied: python-fontpens error: can't build python-ufoprocessor-1.9.0-5, deps not satisfied: python-fontparts error: can't build afdko-3.9.1-1, deps not satisfied: python-fontparts python-fontpens python-ufoprocessor error: can't build proton-ge-custom-2:GE.Proton7.39-2, deps not satisfied: afdko error: packages failed to build: python-fontpens-0.2.4-3 python-fontparts-0.10.8-1 python-ufoprocessor-1.9.0-5 afdko-3.9.1-1 proton-ge-custom-2:GE.Proton7.39-2
From this Brodie Robertson upload Arch Linux Has a Problem and Git is to Blame, it seems that Proton's failure to update comes from submodule dependencies,
python-fontparts, and possibly
python-ufotools. But I could also be wrong.
Thus far I tried the following command
git config --global protocol.file.allow always as a quick and dirty fix, but that didn't seem to do the trick. I also tried other AUR helpers, namely yay, but to no avail.
As a quick fix, I installed protonup. But I'd really prefer a more sustainable solution (preferably one I can understand. Thank you all for your time.
