"Could not update hosts file"

All the solutions I found here to this problem involve things I don’t understand, so is there anyway to give me a dummy answer that doesn’t involve ‘NFC’ locating /etc/hosts etc? Because I can’t find it.
I installed local by flywheel for the first time and the installation was problematic and now this.

Hello @forlane,

I’m so sorry to hear that this issue is popping up! If you would provide the following information, that’ll help me in identifying the issue:

  1. Would you explain what you’re trying to do when the issue pops up?
  2. Are you on Windows or Mac?
  3. Would you send your local-by-flywheel.log file by following the steps: How do I retrieve Local’s log file? so we can get a better idea of what’s going on?

Thank you so much!
