Can't upgrade to 1.4.2. Please Help! (SOLVED)


#1

I still can’t update to the newest meteor version. It seems the meteor version is set to 1.4.2.3 but installing the packages failed.

I did

npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
npm install -g node-gyp
npm config set msvs_version 2015

and gyp seems to work correctly on my other non meteor projects. I stuck at this point since the release of 1.4.2. Please give me an idea how to fix this.

This project is already at Meteor 1.4.2.3, the latest release.
=> Errors while upgrading packages:

#2

fsevents is an NPM designed only for OS X. Currently, your installation thinks that it should install it for some reason – most likely because it’s improperly contained within a package that your project is depending on. The most common culprit of this lately was momentjs:moment@2.15.2. (See this issue for more information). Essentially, if the devDependencies of an OS X user were included in their Atmosphere package when they published it, you won’t be able to get it to work on any non-OSX machine (Linux included!)

I’d recommend running meteor npm ls in order to try and determine where the dependency on fsevents is coming from.

This helped a lot. Thank you! The update works properly now.

(It was the angular authentication modul so I need to do some refactoring on my app)


#4

It does appear that it’s accidentally bundled into angular-meteor-auth. I’ve opened the following issue to hopefully fix that. Shouldn’t be too difficult of a fix, but would require a version bump. :slight_smile:
