Apple Hints HOWTOs Web Development

As I was getting ready to do my first svn check in today – I got an error that I had not seen yesterday:
“svn: error: The subversion command line tools are no longer provided by Xcode”

My operating system: macOS Catalina 10.15.3

Apple’s documentation on how to fix this: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/macos_release_notes/macos_catalina_10_15_release_notes

The solution:

  1. Open: The Terminal App
  2. Type: xcode-select –install
  3. After the install is complete – run your commands as you did before the error

    Unfortunately this did not worked for me:

    xcode-select –install
    xcode-select: error: command line tools are already installed, use “Software Update” to install updates

    It doesn’t work for me either.

    I get “xcode-select: error: command line tools are already installed, use “Software Update” to install updates”

      What happens when you type in: svn help in the command line? That xcode message sounds like you are up to date with the updates

    It didn’t work for me either I’m in 10.15.7
    svn help returns this

    svn: error: Failed to locate ‘svn’
