If you were directed to report your errors here by brew update please post a comment if your error is different to a previously mentioned comment and otherwise "Subscribe" to this issue rather than posting 馃憤 or "me too" etc.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

I am getting

$ brew update
fatal: ambiguous argument 'refs/remotes/origin/master': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this:
'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'
fatal: Couldn't find remote ref refs/heads/master
Error: Fetching /usr/local/Library/Taps/flokru/homebrew-self failed!

Don't know if this is relevant for this issue. I was recently updating brew which went fine, afterwards I got the git error message above while running brew upgrade on packages. The latter failed as it told me the package was not properly linked (brew doctor noticed the same). After linking, the upgrade worked. Now brew update is stuck as noticed above.

@flokru It's not related because we haven't even started the migration (#963) yet.

Re linking problem:

$ brew unlink $(brew ls)
$ brew link $(brew ls)

As for the update problem, could you

$ brew untap flokru/self
$ brew tap flokru/self

and see if that helps?

Thanks, that helps. Actually my tap at https://github.com/flokru/homebrew-self is empty. I don't know when and why it got in there (nor what I was trying to accomplish while foolishly adding it in the past). Not tapping it after untapping helps. Sorry for the noise.

Edit: It's fixed with cd /usr/local; git fetch; git reset --hard origin/master set of commands, even though it didn't work the first time I tried it. Shrug

Hello, I'm not really a super literate brew user so I'm not sure how to address this but I think this is a similar error. It seems that brew link/brew unlink and brew doctor also produce the same error.

$ brew update 
Error: No such file or directory - (../../../Cellar/autoconf/2.69, /usr/local/var/homebrew/linked/autoconf)

@Cynlic Run brew update twice and that should fix it.

@MikeMcQuaid I'm trying to figure out what the conflicts/merges are about.

  • There were several branches in git. Thankfully, they were mostly just old stuff, so nuked them.
  • There were two git stashes left over from previous fighting with Homebrew. Nuked those too.

It's still complaining with the same error message. Any idea how to figure out what the problems it's complaining about are?

I just got the following (error on last line) after being migrated while trying to upgrade a formula:

$ brew upgrade postgresql
==> Auto-updated Homebrew!
Updated Homebrew from 8e9a9b6 to 13f08a2.
Updated 3 taps (homebrew/core, homebrew/science, homebrew/versions).
==> Updated Formulae

Is this just because the formula upgrade is trying to find brew.rb in the old location this one time, or some other harmless reason? Same command works fine now. brew doctor is fine and git status inside /usr/local/Homebrew says:

On branch master
nothing to commit, working tree clean

Thanks

Edit: Same as @viktorbenei it seems.

Probably, rough edge I guess.

Do you have any problem afterwards?

TL;DR; for my and @MatzFan 's issue: brew install X fails if install performs the update, but brew update && brew install X works, as there brew update handles the migration correctly, and then install can proceed

I believe this is an issue of install/upgrade calling udpate first (without HOMEBREW_NO_AUTO_UPDATE, that is).

@MatzFan Yeah, just as you said it was trying to find brew.rb in the old location (brew install without HOMEBREW_NO_AUTO_UPDATE runs update logic first which is in brew's bash layer, it then relays to the ruby layer for install which fails to find the file). This should only happen once and you shouldn't need to worry about it. We'll probably come up with a solution or warning for future folks though, thanks for the report.

I removed the lock file and ran brew update and then it said:

Now when I run again it just says Already up-to-date - and I'm left with a /usr/local/Homebrew containing nothing but a .git folder. Not sure how I migrate this manually as I really like the idea of tidying up /usr/local!

I'm an infrequent brew user. For whatever reason today I ran a brew doctor which told me to do a brew update. I did so, with this result:

@MikeMcQuaid Thanks, uninstalling cleaned things up. The uninstall process deleted everything under /usr/local/Cellar/ but luckily I saved a list of what I had in there before uninstalling, so I know what to go and reinstall. After a fresh install of brew 1.0.7, I was able to do a quick brew install ascii and it worked fine. brew doctor seems happy.

The uninstall process does not appear to have touched the one Cask I had and brew cask doctor also seems happy.

Thank you so much for your contribution to this amazing facility!

@MikeMcQuaid Thanks, uninstalling cleaned things up. The uninstall process deleted everything under /usr/local/Cellar/ but luckily I saved a list of what I had in there before uninstalling, so I know what to go and reinstall. After a fresh install of brew 1.0.7, I was able to do a quick brew install ascii and it worked fine. brew doctor seems happy.

The uninstall process does not appear to have touched the one Cask I had and brew cask doctor also seems happy.

Thank you so much for your contribution to this amazing facility!

After I run brew update, I get an error
==> Migrating HOMEBREW_REPOSITORY (please wait)... Error: Failed to migrate HOMEBREW_REPOSITORY to /usr/local/Homebrew! The error was: Permission denied - /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig Please try to resolve this error yourself and then runbrew updateagain to complete the migration. If you need help please +1 an existing error or comment with your new error in issue: https://github.com/Homebrew/brew/issues/987

Then I run brew doctor, I get
-bash: /usr/local/bin/brew: No such file or directory

It seems that after the brew update fails, the system cannot locate homegrew

@ofWay I'd recommend running the Homebrew installer again.

I'm planning on following the advice above and just re-installing. But thought this info may be helpful.
I had an update fail, apparently usr/local/lib was a file instead of dir. After I resolved that I ran brew update again, and got:
-bash: /usr/local/bin/brew: No such file or directory

FWIW this is the output of the original update attempt.

Hey Mike - appreciate any direction you can provide.

I am running sierra and uninstalled an old version of home brew beccause I was having some probs. Try to re-install it and get the following:

Error: Another active Homebrew process is already in progress.
Please wait for it to finish or terminate it to continue.
Failed during: /usr/local/bin/brew update --force

I saw a similar error in another post but wasnt able to grok how to make it work.

Many thanks

@nuhuxi are there files in /usr/local/var/homebrew/locks? If so, removing them will make that message go away. You may want to make sure it's not telling the truth by rebooting first or checking ps aux | grep brew for any brew process(es) other than the grep itself and killing them.

@ilovezfs It installed. It may have been absolute brute force but it worked. I went into /usr/local/var and rm's homebrew. Installed no problem.

Thanks for your help - truly appreciated.

Hi,

I didn't read through the full thread, but a simple search did not find anything relating to the error I encountered:

Basically homebrew was a symlink to ../../docs:

lrwxr-x---  1 amoneger  admin   10 Jan 31 20:24 homebrew -> ../../docs

I just moved all stuff under ../../docs under a temp dir, deleted the symlink and created a directory instead:

amoneger@silvertip local/Homebrew (master !*%) 禄 mkdir /tmp/brew_docs
amoneger@silvertip local/Homebrew (master !*%) 禄 mv ../share/doc/homebrew/* /tmp/brew_docs
