How to Update from apgluxe 4.25 to 4.69

Postby LaundryPizza03 » January 6th, 2019, 7:58 pm

I was interested in updating my apgluxe from version 4.25 to the current version, 4.69, to begin searching non-totalistic Generations rules, but when I used the --update tag in the command line, this error appeared (names redacted for privacy reasons):
[my iMac]:~ [login]$ cd ~/Downloads/apgmera-master
[my iMac]:apgmera-master [login]$ bash recompile.sh --update
Checking for updates from repository...

...your copy of apgluxe does not match the repository.
New version: "v4.69-" LIFELIB_VERSION
Old version: "v4.25-" LIFELIB_VERSION
fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .gi

How do I resolve this to update to 4.69?
x = 4, y = 3, rule = B3-q4z5y/S234k5j

I'm not sure, but I do want to note that the current version is actually v4.72. No idea why it's telling you v4.69.

And I'm no git expert, but you can always do a fresh clone of the latest apgmera to a new folder somewhere. That should resolve any git repository issues.

It kind of looks like apgmera-master was downloaded rather than cloned using the instructions in the README.
