This seems to be a problem with permissions in the bundle itself. Usually the execution flag doesn't get carried over from the DMG image. Try, for the sake of curiosity to set the execution flag like this: chmod +x /Applications/RubyMine.app/Contents/MacOS/<name of the app> Note: replace <name of the app> with the name of the app (it will ...

This error typically comes up when OSX is trying to access a file or folder on a remote server, but it cannot connect to that server. I have two examples to give an idea of where this can come from: You are able to have MacOS (or OSX as it was known at the time) connect to a remote folder automatically at login. Typically these are shown in the "Login ...

For instance: http://mashable.com/2015/10/01/clean-install-os-x-el-capitan/ This could well take less time than figuring out what the IT guys did, and make your ...

A simple shut down, then start, of OS X should automatically remove debris from /Volumes If you like: disconnect/eject any removable media before the start. Or simply leave the media in place, and restart. There may be other approaches to dealing with volume debris whilst the OS is running but in my experience, it's often better to restart. Also ...

So none of the given answers works on High Sierra (OS X 10.16.x) and I don't have Clean My Mac 3. This Apple article did the trick for me and pretty easily: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203538.

This error is logged on iOS 11 and on macOS 10.13 for sure and I'm not seeing it cause any specific function or problem on any platform. I'll link to the main question here about "does macOS log too much" since that's an opinion and impression that is worthy of discussion. Some people might feel better if there were no messages unless a really serious ...

I can verify the legitimacy of this problem. I had the same issue yesterday, and after a restart, the computer was rendered almost useless due to this error. For some reason, the computer can't deal with this month and throws errors wherever there are databases or plists.

Turns out that this is Apple internal messaging, intended for employees. It appears that, if the machine has a directory named AppleInternal in the root directory, certain Apple-employee-specific features of the OS — including the above one — are silently enabled, without explanation.

OK, this solution is the strangest thing. I found the solution on a Russian site, but now that the search terms for the solution are known you can find at some other sites. The problem is a result of Safari holding too much local data for the site in question and failing to deal with that correctly. I use archive.org a lot so I had lots of LocalStorage and ...
