You need to execute bench update command within the frappe-bench directory, while I see that you are trying to execute it in your user home directory.

Thank you for your prompt response but i am unable to navigate to the frappe-bench directory. Can you please help with this…

frappe-bench should be located in user’s home directory. So it should be there either in ubuntu users home directory as per the screenshot that you have shown, or else in frappe user directory, if you installed your ERPNext instance using the installation script.

Thanks Shreyasp

try it again

my first post was wrong
sudo chmod 666 /home.frappe/frappe-bench/logs/bench.log

use this
sudo chmod 666 /home/frappe/frappe-bench/logs/bench.log

Thanks Claily

but nothing happen i got returned to the directory

You need to bench update again

You have permission problem on your files

the command earlier gives permission to

Now you have problems with patches.txt
using this command will also fix the permission for that file

sudo chmod 666 /home/frappe/frappe-bench/patches.txt

or you could try

chmod -R 666 /home/frappe/frappe-bench
this will give permissions to frappe-bench diectory

Great Claily, here is another error message

This post will help you on this

Thank you Claily

I seem to have permission issue all over and i am trying to run this script from the recommended post but i am stuck

chown -R frappe:frappe /home/frappe/.bench
chown -R frappe:frappe /home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe
chown -R frappe:frappe /home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/erpnext
cd /home/frappe/frappe-bench
bench update
