[SOLVED] Cannot clone or pull meteor project from Github


I need to pull an update to a cloned copy of Meteor and, since v2.10.0, it’s tripping up with this (cloning from master):

remote error: upload-pack: not our ref 1801279da67832f8bb298b8d8711711d816153f5 Fetched in submodule path ‘packages/non-core/blaze’, but it did not contain 1801279da67832f8bb298b8d8711711d816153f5. Direct fetching of that commit failed.

I get the same issue if I try and clone the whole project afresh.

Any ideas?

Hello there, what command have you run?
Was it this one below?

$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/meteor/meteor.git
$ cd meteor

Here is the detailed way of installing meteor locally to develop locally.

Many thanks,

It was kinda that - I have an existing clone of Meteor and with the new submodule it was refusing to let me pull from the official meteor to get the latest updates (while keeping my changes). My clone does not have the submodule.

I sorted it by recloning meteor and then pulling my version over it and then pushing it all back into my repository.

All good
