Question / Issue:

Do you have a fix for running "repo init" on Ubuntu 20.04? It is failing at: <path>/.repo/repo/main.py", line 79 file=sys.stderr) The repo script was installed by the Ubuntu distribution.

Comment:

It is evidently an issue with an interaction between python3 and python2 using the repo script provided by the Ubuntu distribution. Follow the directions for manual install on the repo home page: https://gerrit.googlesource.com/git-repo/ You can also perform a brute force upgrade at /usr/bin by overwriting repo using curl: $ sudo -i # cd /usr/bin # curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > repo # chmod a+rx repo # exit $ cd <path> $ repo init ... repo has been initialized in <path>
