brew update gets stuck #895
Yesterday I discovered the Aug10-11 bug and ran the line to fix this. It got my homebrew back to life and I got lost of updates. I could also install julia from cask. Since then, however, running
~$ brew update
seems to get stuck. That is, nothing happens and I need to get back to the prompt. I have tried to rerun the Aug10-11 line and it too gets stuck now.
brew upgrade still did something (the first time, not afterwards of course), namely
$ brew upgrade
The results of brew config and brew doctor can be found below. The files that the latter warns about have to do with mathematics software that I installed. Thanks in advance!
$ brew config

Wonderful, that did it! It seems to be back to normal working order, so this is closed as far as I am concerned. Gist below in case you are interested. It downloaded something large in the process. Something to do with cask, which I needed to install Julia.
