Hi @ofiuco! This seems to be a bug in cabal. I've moved your post to a thread where others have had the same problem. The (hopeful) solution is in this post -> Silent fail when trying to upgrade to tidal 1.4.9 - #5 by yaxu
Thank you! Totally worked!!
Thanks so much. I was having exactly the same problem and this seems to have fixed it.
I'm useless with Terminal can. I'm guessing the first line "rm -rf" is something like uninstall/remove and then reeinstall?
rm -rf is a shorthand for
rm -r -f, which in turn is a shorthand for
rm --recursive --force. It means force remove recursively. That is to say, remove the folders given (
~/.cabal) and their subfolders at any rate.
These kinds of folders often contain files and folders with read-only flags set. When that's the case and you omit the
-f flag in the
rm command, you'll have to acknowledge each single file.
I encourage you to read the documentation for the
rm command. Enter
I'm in Windows too and this worked fine! Thank you @yaxu
