Error syncing meta-repo

Question

Having issues using ego sync.  I'm not 100% sure when this first appeared - chances are I've messed something up unwittingly...

Whenever I run ego sync I encounter an error:

# ego-sync
Syncing meta-repo
fatal: Couldn't find remote ref refs/heads/1.1-prime
There was an error syncing meta-repo.

I think this means the remote git repo isn't available?  Haven't been able to figure this out...

And it does appear that this was the issue - and it's fixed in our git version of ego and should be fixed in our next release. Until then, if you have the issue, type "cd /tmp" and re-run the command and it should work :)

This may be caused by being in a directory that is not readable by the portage user when you run the ego sync command. So if you see it in the future, see if changing directories to /var/tmp first helps. We are investigating to see if this is an actual bug.
