I recently started seeing the following messages on almost any brew command:
fatal: --local can only be used inside a git repository fatal: --local can only be used inside a git repository fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
It happens while running:
brew cask upgrade
This is my brew doctor output:
brew doctor fatal: --local can only be used inside a git repository fatal: --local can only be used inside a git repository fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git Please note that these warnings are just used to help the Homebrew maintainers with debugging if you file an issue. If everything you use Homebrew for is working fine: please don't worry or file an issue; just ignore this. Thanks! Warning: You have unlinked kegs in your Cellar. Leaving kegs unlinked can lead to build-trouble and cause brews that depend on those kegs to fail to run properly once built. Run `brew link` on these: python@2
And brew config:

One thing I did is I uninstalled XCode as I don’t need it and instead only installed command line utilities from Apple Developer site. So running
xcode-select --install looks fine:
xcode-select --install xcode-select: error: command line tools are already installed, use "Software Update" to install updates
xcode-select -p /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools
ls -al $(xcode-select -p) total 0 drwxr-xr-x 5 root admin 160 Oct 19 21:05 . drwxr-xr-x 4 root admin 128 Oct 16 19:49 .. drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 192 Sep 6 2019 Library drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 192 Apr 8 17:00 SDKs drwxr-xr-x 7 root admin 224 Oct 19 21:05 usr
xcode-select --version xcode-select version 2373.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
