The current version of rxvt-unicode is 9.26. The upstream site has all 
the old versions available going back decades, but they are in a 
directory called Attic. The AUR package you use needs to be updated to 
either point at the Attic URL if it needs an old version or the current 
version if it can do that. I suggest commenting to this effect on the 
AUR package.

Also, since it's been a while since you looked around, and as a 10+ year 
user of URXVT myself can I suggest there are some better alternatives 
these days? Alacritty would be my top suggestion, but but no means the 
only good one.
