Missing dependencies libalpm.so>=12 when trying to build yay

Hi I want to install yay but I'm getting missing dependencies while the build process.

[marcel@manjaroarm yay]$ makepkg -si
==> Making package: yay 9.4.7-1 (Wed 06 May 2020 01:35:12 PM CEST)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Installing missing dependencies...
[sudo] password for marcel: 
error: target not found: libalpm.so>=12
==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.
==> Missing dependencies:
  -> libalpm.so>=12
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

When I run pacman --version I get the following:

Pacman v5.2.1 - libalpm v12.0.1

so libalpm is >=12 so why cant I make the package?

try with that only ^^

yay is in the repo. No need to build it.
