Beta Development Setup - Bench Update

I have installed Beta Development Setup and am on Version 7. The Directory structure is like this:


I don’t have the bench-repo folder at all. When I run the bench update command, I get the following error. What’s going on? Any help is appreciated.

This is a known issue, can you go into the .bench / bench-repo folder in your home directory and run git pull there and try this command again?

No bench or bench-repo folders on my installation.


" .bench " is a hidden folder

You should be able to access it by running :

cd ~/.bench

no bench folder. Unless it’s in some other location.



For me it was just .bench not .bench/bench-repo. However the repo was full of uncommitted changes which I had to stash before I could get pull but the repo was up to date. The rest of installation went through
