QuestionsCategory: BIOSTARMore trouble with Xcode
kindrickjd@nih.gov asked 7 months ago

I have downloaded an older version of Xcode, extracted the software and then moved it to my Applications folder. However, when I try to continue with the set up instructions (typing “xcode-select —install”) I receive the error message “Can’t install the software because it is not currently available from the software update server.” It looks like my Xcode is definitely installed and located in “/Applications /Xcode.app/Contents/Developter” instead of in “/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools”  If I try to proceed with installing Homebrew, I receive the same error message about Xcode. What should I do?

Some people on Mojave are having problems like this.
A solution is to go to the Developer Site as listed in the Q&A page https://developer.apple.com/download/more/?=xcode
Find the “Command Line Tools for Xcode 11.3.1” then download and install that… I believe this will solve your problem.
[Note the above assumes you installed “Xcode 11.3.1”, if you used a different version, you should use the Command Line Tools for that version.]
