What I'm wondering is, that xz shall give the same error when executed
directly in terminal. This shouldn't happen, because xz and liblzma.so
belong to the same package, and I don't get this error.

There's, btw., no liblzma.so.0 in the package xz.

So first try to update your system (pacman -Syu) from another mirror as
Meyithi suggested.

If this doesn't solve the problem, try to reinstall xz and yaourt.
Don't forget to remove the old xz package from the pacman cache
(/var/cache/pacman/pkg) before, so that it's not just reinstalled but
downloaded from the mirror again.
