Updated spacemacs today, and then updating the packages, got an error about 'evil-unimpaired'.
1 The problem
git pullin .emacs.d to get the latest spacemacs develop branch - no problems
SPC f e Dto get my config and the template config in sync - no problems
SPC f e Uto try and update packages - problem.
condition-case: Failed to checkout ‘evil-unimpaired’: ‘Creating directory: No such file or directory, home/neil.emacs.d/.cache/quelpa/build/evil-unimpaired/’
2 The fix
A few other people seem to have had a similar problem.
- syl20bnr/spacemacs#10645 Error installing quelpa packages; complaining missin…
- check you're on
developbranch and not
master(I already was)
- try removing .cache and starting again
- error still occurs for me
- I didn't see this solution listed anywhere else, but
mkdir -p .cache/quelpa/build/evil-unimpairedseemed to fix it for me.
Afterwards I'm still getting this warning:
–> Warning: cannot update 2 package(s), possibly due to a temporary network problem: phpcbf php-auto-yasnippets
But let's leave that for now.
