dpkg-deb --build $BUILD_DIR/package-name $BUILD_DIR/package-name.deb dpkg-deb: building package 'package-name' in '/build/package-name.deb'. tar: unrecognized option '--clamp-mtime' Try tar --help' ortar --usage' for more information. dpkg-deb: error: subprocess tar -cf returned error exit status 64

I traced this down to a recent dpkg-deb change that seems to require a newer version of tar to use --build. I confirmed this by building the latest tar, and the error went away.

Version That doesn't work: tar --version tar (GNU tar) 1.26

When I built the following, everything worked: tar --version tar (GNU tar) 1.30

From the docs, it looks like 1.28 is the required version

Can we please update the spec to require 1.28. Or roll back the change that requires this version? ( RHEL/CentOS repos only make 1.26 available )
