Bug Description

The instructions here:

https://www.openastro.org/?Download

for Manjaro (arch) are broken on several places:

1. yaourt is discontinued

2. the link "https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/openastro/openastro.tar.gz" is 404, and i'm not sure how to find the correct link

3. on the "generic linux installation" section, package "librsvg2-bin" is not available in manjaro

4. python3-swisseph is not available for manjaro

5. I discovered that "yaourt" is replaced by "yay"; so I tried to install with "yay" (the heck) and running gave me this bug, which i'm going to report separately:
