Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @theking2

Since this is a screenshot I can’t troubleshoot the full error. If you’re having trouble getting Local to update you might download the latest release to update manually.

  1. Quit Local if running
  2. Download the latest release: Releases - Local
  3. Open the downloaded .dmg and drag Local.app to /Applications. If prompted to replace the existing version, go ahead and replace the existing version.

restarted my pc
download 9.0.3
attempted install
same thing

How do I upgrade localwp successfully?

Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local? Are you logged in as an admin user? It might be that something on your machine is blocking the download/update and preventing access.

I have the same problem, were you able to solve it?

Did you try updating Local manually?

Have you checked for any conflicting apps or programs?
