[FIX] `Could not create temporary directory: Permission Denied` v1.28.0

image
For those getting an error like this ^ when trying to update, run the following bash in terminal…

$ sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Caches/com.github.atom.ShipIt
$ sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.github.atom.ShipIt

I got this today trying to update to v1.28.0; Why does this continue to happen?!

  1. @rsese – just as a note here about one possible cause of this issue, for me it happened after I’d run CleanMyMac 3 to clean up old cache files, and I’m almost certain that it cleaned ~/Library/Caches/com.github.atom.ShipIt. I got the Could not create temporary directory: Permission Denied error message, and doing the two sudo chown ... commands above fixed it.
