I am trying to install homebrew using command /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)" on my mac but I am getting this error:
HEAD is now at aa937b902 Merge pull request #11474 from cho-m/fix-tar-validation.

I'm using zsh and already installed the Xcode using the command xcode-select --install

What can I do to solve the error? Any help is appreciated.

  • I would try again later - that looks like Homebrew development have an issue with their git and is either a temporary glitch or they will fix it soon.

    This is the pull request in question: github.com/Homebrew/brew/pull/11474 and HEAD is at that commit: github.com/Homebrew/brew/commits/master -- I don't know if that's an error message, but an info message. Jun 2, 2021 at 19:41
  • Have you ever installed Homebrew before? Can you try uninstalling first?

    That's not an error message, whether you post it here on or Reddit. Why are you "unable"? Jun 3, 2021 at 4:50

I had the same "problem" recently. I let it hang for 5 minutes and it still just sat there. I then waited 10 minutes and no different. (I control-c'ed out after each wait.) I closed the terminal and re-opened it and tried again. It "hung" for only about 30 seconds and completed.
