Mapping for within Artifacts.toml already exists

I updated an artifact online and wanted therefore to remove the existing (old) artifact I had locally, so I went and found the folder that contained it (in .julia/artifacts/hash/here) and just deleted it. Now I get this error:

How can I fix this?

Not knowing how Julia tracks all the stuff in the .julia directory I would probably nuke the whole .julia directory and let it be rebuilt.

eh… no.

I hope not?

I can’t find this package anywhere (not registered, not known to Google), so it’s hard to diagnose this. It looks like bind_artifact! is complaining that there’s already an entry for the name you’re giving to that artifact. You have to use unbind_artifact!() to remove the existing binding or equivalently, manually delete the stanzas in the Artifacts.toml file that define that artifact binding.


Here’s the repo

Thanks for trying!

I’ll try what you suggested.
