After MacOS system upgrade to Catalina, on my computer git did not work anymore. If you happened the same, the following steps resolve it for me!

Running any of git commands, you would probably got this error

xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

To fix it, you had to run

xcode-select --install
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The "xcode-select" command requires the command line developer tools.

A prompt will appear asking you to install it now.


When installation is completed, git should work as expected! 😎
