Can't update to - errors


Hi guys!

So I am on a Macbook developing my Meteor application since forever. Now I am running into problems updating to (I think that’s the newest version atm right?).
This project is currently running Meteor!
On my system Node v4.1.2 and the newest NPM are installed. Maybe I am wrong but Meteor still ships with “it’s own” v0.10.46 Version of Node right?
Anyways … here is the errors I get:

=> Errors while initializing project:

While loading package fourseven:scss@3.4.3:

Can someone help? Thanks a bunch in advance!

best, P


funnily enough i resolved a similar error with fourseven:scss just 5 minutes ago ^^
while it worked fine on win8, on debian it crashed on update, run and list.

running meteor update as root, then sudo meteor run -p 80 as normal user solved it for me.


Just tried sudo meteor update - didn’t change anything! :pensive:


sudo meteor update didn’t work for me either. try:

[root password]
meteor update
sudo meteor run -p 80
[user password]


Tried that as well - first it downloads Meteor all over again because of different user (root), and then at some point the same error occurs.

Meteor upgrade conflict with fourseven: scss@ 3.3.3_3

Fixed it!

What I did:
run meteor update fourseven:scss first and normal meteor update afterwards.


@klabauter It worked for me as well. Thanks! :slight_smile:


I was running Meteor 1.3.4-rc.2. Still had the error.
Had to downgrade to Meteor then it worked :slight_smile:


This just happened to me on Windows :frowning:

Running with powershell as admin. Any tips?


whats your meteor version?


Nevermind I got around it by removing fourseven:scss, updating and then re-adding that package. Weird.


This worked for me as well.


My fourseven is giving an EACESS error despite being root user, sudo, and SIP disabled.

I tried updating fourseven and got the error.

Tried removing, updating, adding technique and also not working (can’t re-add package, same error).
