Error - unable to install home-brew and php (Intel Mac)

Recommended Posts



I have these error while trying to install home-brew and php with the suggestion of Alfred support team.

I had errors when trying to run some workflows and because of this I reached out to Alfred support.


Here are the errors.


Thanks in advance.


home brew;

terminal command I used (from home-brew website): /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

PHP installation;

I used this command in the terminal: brew install php@7.4

Warning: No available formula with the name "php@7.4".
==> Searching for similarly named formulae...
Error: No similarly named formulae found.
==> Searching for a previously deleted formula (in the last month)...
Error: No previously deleted formula found.
==> Searching taps on GitHub...
Error: No formulae found in taps.


This is where it all started trying to run a workflow called downmedia. I had the same issue on few other workflows as well.



Thanks !

Thanks Vitor,


after reset and using the command below I was able to see dv and da on the quick launch bar (Alfred - option + space)

`brew install yt-dlp`


However I get a message - `download failed` and nothing shows when I look for progress. btw I'm on Alfred 4.
