No, this isn't a bug. You cannot overwrite a package from a different
package base. What you can do is:
1. Rename the sddm-qt5-git package without changing its package base:
This might also require some "$pkgname" references to be replaced by
"$pkgbase" in order to successfully build a new package.
2. Submit the updated package to the AUR. This will result in the
package name changing from sddm-qt5-git to sddm-qt5-git-old.
3. Upload the new split package.
4. Request the old (renamed) package (sddm-qt5-git-old) to be merged
into the new one.
Please read both  and  for details.
