I have been getting these errors for several weeks now and I believe it has something to do with SSL since "yaourt -S --insecure " works but "yaourt -S " does not. Is there some way to turn on debugging so that I can isolate the origin of this problem?

Do you have a way to reproduce the problem ? never seend an ssl problem here
You can run "bash -x yaourt" to have an "debug" output. (but maybe the problem is on package-query side)

Thank you very much! I have isolated to problem to be the result of prepending $HOME/anaconda/bin to my PATH. The Anaconda Python distribution comes with its own version of various libraries including curl and openssl so one of these libraries is not playing nice with yaourt. I shall have to think of an alternative method for executing my python scripts.

Just to follow up on this, I have isolated the problem to be the version of curl packaged with Anaconda. Is there some way to specify that yaourt should use /usr/bin/curl?

I seem to have found out how to resolve this. Anaconda's curl has troubles when working with https, so that might be the reason why yaourt can't install anything. The command "conda remove curl" leaves you with normal version of curl, and yaourt starts to work properly. I haven't yet checked if Anaconda works after having its curl deinstalled, though.

I just upgraded yaourt to 1.6-1 and experimented with uncommenting the AURURL line in /etc/yaourtrc to reflect aur4, and tried to update a package that I know is on aur4 but not aur. I got this same not found in AUR error, and I've never had Anaconda installed. Moreover, which curl yields /usr/bin/curl. The yaourt -S --insecure variation mentioned above doesn't work either.

I've never had this yaourt error prior to now.

I installed the same package from aur4 without any AUR helper and it worked as expected.

@kairuku : I think your problem is related to archlinuxfr/package-query#8 (related to AUR4 rpc api change).
Can you try with package-query-git ? I'll release a new package-query version soon.

@Skunnyk: I uninstalled package-query and yaourt and reinstalled manually from aur4 and the error message has gone away, and I was also able to install the aur4 package that had been problematic earlier. Thank you for releasing a new version so quickly :)

could you give me more information how to get rid of this error without uninstalling anaconda?

@rvu95 you don't have to uninstall the entire anaconda, just removing curl from the anaconda package has done the trick for me.

Thanks. "conda remove curl" works. Although I am not sure what is going to break in anaconda.

My experience is that nothing in anaconda gets broken. I surmise that curl is included with anaconda in case one's linux distribution does not come preinstalled with curl.

Thank you @heat-wave. For the records, I had a problem with
pacaur can't connect to the AUR while cower works fine. Since I hadn't found anything meaningful wrt pacaur, I searched the yaourt issues and discovered this solution that fixed also my pacaur problem.
