git xcrun error after catalina upgrade

It’s been pretty smooth after upgrading to catalina, but I got this error when trying to run git this morning…

xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun

Easily fixed…

xcode-select --install

Let it do the thing and you’ll be back in business.


  • If you’re still getting the “bash is going away” prompt, add export BASH_SILENCE_DEPRECATION_WARNING=1 to ~/.bash_profile)
  • terraform wouldn’t load because it’s not signed by something Apple likes, so here’s an article on how to fix terraform - tl;dr find the binary in the finder and right-click-open-allow it.
