Getting "command not found" errors when attempting upgrade

Post by barry.marcus »

Hi,

I downloaded an upgrade to Texis, unzipped the file and placed it in its own directory on my Linux server. When I run the command

sh ./install

per the instructions I get the following:

: command not found
: command not found
: command not found
: command not found
: command not found
'/install: line 59: syntax error near unexpected token `{
'/install: line 59: `showprompt () {

That's it. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've moved this to the installation group.

We'll need a lot more info such as what platform you're running on and what you downloaded. It might be better to respond to the ticket that gave you the download.

You could add a
set -x
line to the top of the install script and run it again to see where it's failing. It sounds like you have rudimentary commands missing from your system.
