I needed to downgrade
sops package to version
because of this issue.
There are several ways to downgrade a package or install a specific version of it in Arch Linux:
From the pacman cache
1 2 3 4 5
$ # Check available versions in the cache: $ ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg/sops* $ # Install it: $ sudo pacman -U \ /var/cache/pacman/pkg/sops-3.7.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
From the Arch Linux archive
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
$ # Check available versions in the archive: $ curl -s https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/s/sops/ $ # Another way to check: $ curl -s https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/.all/index.0.xz \ | xz -d \ | grep sops $ # Install it: $ sudo pacman -U \ https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/.all/sops-3.7.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
From the AUR (sometimes there are older versions for backward compatibility)
$ yay sops $ # See what you've got ...
Build from the AUR
1 2 3 4 5
$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/sops-git.git $ cd sops-git $ # Target to the needed tag (this is not tested): $ sed -i 's/branch=develop/branch=3.7.2/' PKGBUILD $ makepkg -si
The needed version was not in the cache, but I found it in the Arch Linux archive which was a good option. See the corresponding commands above.
