Problem installing Julia on Mac

Hi all. I was unable to install julia by running the following command
curl -fsSL | sh
I tried it through JuliaUp, it didn’t help. I was advised to build the image myself using the following commands
git clone
cd Julia
git checkout v1.9.4
But I received the following error
curl: (28) Connection timeout after 15004 ms

make[1]: *** [/Users/egryumova/julia/stdlib/srccache/NetworkOptions-791fa05928f03b7f18ff5ba0d6c7fbf6c6c25e78.tar.gz] Error 28

make: *** [julia-stdlib] Error 2

Please help me figure out what to do about this

What was the error message?

after installing Julia via juliaup, I opened it and a message appeared saying that It couldn’t open the terminal

Which terminal are you using? Do you have bash installed? How did you install or launch juliaup?

What is the output of:

echo $SHELL

in the terminal?

I’m using a terminal application on a Mac. I installed the dmg file from the official website and performed the standard installation by dragging and dropping into applications.

I received the following output

Well, I cannot help with this type of installation. I find it easier to help people remotely if they just use a terminal, because than you can copy and past commands and share the output without having to make screenshots…

Can you try to switch to bash as explained in the link above?

yes, I’m trying to do that

Note that bash isn’t the default shell on MacOS:

❯ bash

The default interactive shell is now zsh.
To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.

although it still works.

A ‘traditional’ (pre-Juliaup) install on MacOS (unpacking the DMG and dragging into ‘/Applications’) should work OK, and you can then run Julia (1.10 version) by typing:


in a Terminal window.

Double-clicking the icon should launch an AppleScript that opens a new Terminal window.
