Curl http://install.meteor.com not working


#1

Hi guys,

I just found out that this is not working. I was running Travis CI just fine when my builds started to fail. I looked at the logs and it is failing on “curl https://install.meteor.com | /bin/sh”

$ curl https://install.meteor.com | /bin/sh

Installation failed.The command "curl https://install.meteor.com | /bin/sh" failed and exited with 2 during .

I tried it in my PC and it rendered my laptop useless to do meteor commands.

I downloaded the install.meteor.com file and tried checking what’s wrong and found this:

RELEASE="1.2.0.4-logging.0"

I changed it to this

RELEASE="1.2.0.1"

based on the xml file I found here: https://d3sqy0vbqsdhku.cloudfront.net/ from this post with a similar problem: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32706364/404-error-installing-meteor-on-mac-os-x-10-10-5

Would there be a reason why the current install.meteor.com sh file is different?

@lampe yep. Saw it. Seems to work. I also added it on my github.

I can run using

“curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tjmonsi/stable-meteor-install/master/meteorInstall.sh | /bin/sh”

I can confirm that this is not working on OSX El Capitan 10.11.

curl https://install.meteor.com | sh returns:

I did a download yesterday on a separate computer and it worked fine.

    Meteor 1.1.0.3 has been installed in your home directory (~/.meteor).
    Writing a launcher script to /usr/local/bin/meteor for your convenience.
    
    To get started fast:
    
      $ meteor create ~/my_cool_app
      $ cd ~/my_cool_app
      $ meteor
    
    Or see the docs at:
    
      docs.meteor.com

then do

$ meteor update

you should see this result:

    Installed. Run 'meteor update --release 1.2.0.4-logging.0' inside of a particular project directory to update that project to Meteor 1.2.0.4-logging.0.

Save the script:

curl https://install.meteor.com/ > meteor.sh

open it with any editor and check the release version
Currently its

RELEASE=“1.2.0.4-logging.0”

Firstly there is no 1.2.0.4
and second there is not a single release with “logging.0” on its name

You can check here: https://d3sqy0vbqsdhku.cloudfront.net/
Do a Ctrl-F and choose a release version

I manually edited the file and changed:

RELEASE="1.2.0.4-logging.0"
to
RELEASE=“1.2.0.2”

that’s it


#8

do not use this, diyungh mentioned is wrong. there is 1.2.0.4 but you need to revert to old version and then do
meteor update to get to 1.2.0.4


#9

Unless you are using another host, I do not see any version 1.2.0.4 here: https://d3sqy0vbqsdhku.cloudfront.net/
Also I am doing a fresh install


#10

@diyungh please kindly read the above before posting.

i already edited the script, there is not need for you to remention it. you are making them go the extra step, my script has already been edited for them and all they just have to do is curl it. please kindly read the rules before posting unnecessary.

Hi guys,

It’s already been fixed by the Meteor team :smile:


#12

@shaunstanislaus I was hoping for changes in the main install script, not some custom ones
Changes which I am seeing right now here: https://install.meteor.com/

Also in my post I just provided why it was failing instead of shadowing it.

Nevermind now, @tjmonsi confirmed it’s been fixed for sure

Cheers
