I have deleted the Xcode Command Line Tools from my machine by essentially removing the folder. However, AppStore still shows updates from the CLI tools, which obviously I don't want.
I've been trying to properly understand where AppStore looks to figure out what needs updating, but I haven't been able to find a certain answer yet. I tried editing the updatejournal file, but that didn't help, so I've since restored it.
I started to suspect that the fact that
pkgutil shows some
CLTools-packages might be the cause of this. Forgetting them does not work however as the bom are neither in
pkgutil --forget essentially fails because of this).
I did however find them after a lot of searching in
/System/Library/Receipts. Those I can't delete though due to the system security. I can of course bypass that and delete them to see if it works, but I don't want to do that "just to see".
I would like to find a proper solution to this.
Any ideas what I should do here?
