Have you encountered the error “/usr/bin/pacman: unrecognized option ‘–color never’” while trying to install or update packages in your Arch Linux system?. This has been an error experienced by many users, especially those using pacaur AUR wrapper to manage system packages.
I got /usr/bin/pacman: unrecognized option ‘–color never’ error while trying to install
minikube-bin on Arch:
The fix for this is to enable colors when pacman’s output is on a tty. To do this, open
$ sudo /etc/pacman.conf
Then uncomment the line
# Color like below:
This will allow
pacaur to pass the option. Now try installing the package again with
pacaur or package manager of your choice.
$ pacaur -S minikube-bin
It should be working now.
