Ok my bad. I don't see it was a local link...

By trying to update this package i discovered that we need an oracle
account and accept a license to be able to download the Zip files
needed to installation.
I don't believe this is simply scriptable in a PKGBUILD. So, we can:
1 - Delete the package
2 - Update the package and asking to user which want to build package
to manually download zip files from oracle.com

What would you prefer?
