Does anyone know what to make of these messages/warnings?

Forge database needs to be updated.  Backup first? (y or n) y

could go to the forge package and search for which command asks you to backup. Then check what it tries to do that does not work

I'd be tempted to not backup (and even delete) the forge database and start from scratch. It should only be information pulled from GitHub/GitLab, which can be retrieved again.

Do you know how to delete it? I saw mention of a file on one github issues, but i didn't have it.


The error message says where it should be. If it's not there, search your filespace for a forge-database file. If not found, remove the magit forge package and restart Emacs.


alternatively there is a good chance you find it with apropos-user-option -> "forge" I bet there is a variable for the db path or alternatively searching for "filename" in the the forge package file 😅
