Arch AUR – yay “xy is not a clone of https://github.com/xxx.git”

Problem: The AUR yay-update of a package fails with the error message like “xy is not a clone of https://github.com/xy.git”

Solution: Delete the source clone mentioned in the error message. Be careful: Not the PKGBUILD, but the clone that goes into the same directory as the PKGBUILD by default. Afterwards yay will clone the repository again and update.
