I think someone's not too long ago was curious: "what so nice and unique about eshell" https://twitter.com/iLemming/status/975889923571003393

I have issues downloading packages from elpa

achikin12:03:16

I have no idea what is going on

dmitryn14:03:24

Did you try removing ~/.emacs.d completely and run spacemacs installation from beginning?

chris14:03:37

mv elpa elpa.bak and restart emacs

chris14:03:06

sometimes emacs gets confused about which packages it has installed and then freaks out

achikin14:03:35

I have already tried deleting the whole .emacs.d and re-cloning it

achikin14:03:50

Still get those messages

achikin14:03:37

I have even tried to move away my .spacemacs

achikin14:03:45

Does not help either

achikin14:03:32

Hmmm, I wiped out both .spacemacs and .emacs and everything is working as expected

ag17:03:08

@achikin from time to time I run git clean -Xdf in ~/.emacs.d and let it install and recompile all the packages. Most of the time it doesn't hurt. I had a few times a problem with that, that turned out to be thing in my config (I would change something in one of my own layers, that doesn't affect anything unless I get to a clean slate). Sometimes it is hard to track down problem such that. In that case I would disable all the layers, and then start adding them one-by-one, until I find the one that causes the error.

@ag thank you. Finally I did sonething like this - removed emacs.d, removed all configs and reinstalled from scratch

ag17:03:11

yeah, it's a bit drastic... git clean cool though. Try running it with -n key, that way it will do "dry run": and will not actually delete things, but shows you what would be deleted

@jr0cket I hope you don't mind minimal PRs, i found small errors in the key combos for changing line numbering while reading along.
