I've tried to build beamer-theme-metropois in a "clean" Docker
container with minimal set of packages, and I cannot reproduce your
error: beamer-theme-metropolis builds and installs perfectly (I
haven't tried using it though).

As you haven't provided PKGBUILD file I'm only guessing what changes
you have made to it to make it work. Apart from changing "pkgver" and
"sha5sums" variables I also had to modify "depends" array. I'm
attaching the diff below:

Are you building in a "clean" environment?
