Bad Pull in git?


When I try to update from git develop (using git desktop) I get this error:

error: invalid path 'app/lib/BatchMediaImportProgress.php:'

Updating 22c80aaaa..dc566da27

I assume the path needs to be '/app/lib....'?


  • We'll take a look today.

  • Thank you. Dont rule out operator (me) error.

  • Try it again? I'm not sure what the problem is but I've just pushed some changes to address some test failures that might help here.

    still doing it....but only on develop. Same odd error. I can pull master fine.

    I can also pull host/1.8...but NOT 1.8rc1 or 1.8rc2 - same blowup on app/lib/BatchMediaImportProgress.php

    If I manually do a git pull it chugs along until:














  • I don't have a problem pulling any branch including the ones you've referenced. Are you doing this on Windows?

  • debian on windows....with & with out git desktop

  • So you're running Windows? And an NTFS file system?

  • I believe it is some hybrid thing win10 does. Its their debian emulation. I've used it just fine for a few years. You can move files , but permissions are very funny and I'm told it is easy to corrupt files by writing to them from windows, so I avoid doing that.

    I'm not running CA , I'm just using it as a place to pull to and merge my work. It all gets pushed to a shared server where it is really running.

    OK I think I found the problem: If you download the zip, there are two files

    "/app/lib/BatchMediaImportProgress.php" and

    "/app/lib/BatchMediaImportProgress.php:" <--note the final : in the filename. I think THAT is what is causing things to explode.

  • This is resolved now. Thanks for tracking down the root cause.

  • I have learned much about using git because of this. I'm ready for next time now!

  • We'll try to avoid it next time.
