It's not related to the issue, anyway, just in case you shouldn't do
this already, I strongly recommend to upgrade from official repositories
first, by using the official supported tool, IOW
$ sudo pacman -Syu
$ yaourt -Syua
"yaourt -Syua" most likely never will fail, but you never know.

OTOH the AUR comments could be more appropriate for tools that aren't
official supported. OTOH AUR comments aren't a support forum. It's
controversial, I just want to point out, that helpers are a thorn in
some subscribers side. However, I like yaourt much and also would
recommend to use AUR general.

Used to force the package to be seen as newer than any
previous versions with a lower epoch, even if the version
number would normally not trigger such an upgrade. This value
is required to be a positive integer; the default value if
left unspecified is 0. This is useful when the version
numbering scheme of a package changes (or is alphanumeric),
breaking normal version comparison logic. See pacman(8) for
more information on version comparisons.
And FWIW, also not related to the issue, but just in case the OP
shouldn't be aware of this, git packages might never provide updates
