Error when trying to (re)install ffmpeg


(Sean Murray) #1

I had previously installed ffmpeg via Homebrew. For various reasons, I needed to uninstall and reinstall it. While uninstalling it seemed to work just fine, I keep getting an error when I attempt to reinstall it. Specifically, I’m getting the following list of errors…

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
Error: Failure while executing: tar xzf /Users/sean/Library/Caches/Homebrew/texi2html-5.0.tar.gz

I even tried completely uninstalling Homebrew and starting from scratch, but I’m continuing to get the same error. Anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed from here?


(Sean Molenaar) #2

You could try removing everything in your /Users/sean/Library/Caches/Homebrew/ directory, see if it helps.


(Sean Murray) #3

Tried that. Unfortunately, I got the same error.


(Sean Molenaar) #4

Followed the list here: https://docs.brew.sh/Troubleshooting?


(Rubber Shoes) #5

I am also seeing this issue. Just installing ffmpeg for the first time no re/uninstall


(Sean Molenaar) #6

Can you follow the guide I linked above?


(Robert Oschwald) #7

Same problem here. brew doctor shows everything ok.
I cannot untar the texi2html-5.0.tar.gz file manually as well. Same errors.

So I assume the texi2html-5.0.tar.gz archive is broken.


(Robert Oschwald) #8

Problem only exists on Mojave. On HS, archive can be unpacked and texti2html can be compiled correctly. So lets wait for 10.14 official support.


(Zerui18) #9

Until that’s fixed, forcing brew to pour from bottle should fix the issue.
brew install texi2html --force-bottle


(Sean Murray) #10

Tried that command; still got the same error.


(Vesaliuz) #11

That worked perfectly for me


(Sean Murray) #12

Tried it again, and it worked that time. Thanks!
