"fatal error: concurrent map read and map write" -- what to do?

Hello all,

I’m a huge Hugo fan but now I’m having a problem that is completely insurmountable given my level of Go understanding. I would really be grateful for any help working around this.

Any attempts to build my Hugo sites (many, many sites, during 99/100 attempts) simply fails with this error and a huge stacktrace. I will append one of these huge stacktraces to this post.

So now Hugo doesn’t work, and all of my websites are in Hugo format. Consequently, I can’t maintain any of my websites.

I googled this issue and searched it on this forum as well. I upgraded to the latest stable Go release, 1.7.4, and also tried building Hugo from source (latest master branch), in addition to trying latest stable Hugo build. No matter what, I get this error.

I am using the following theme: https://github.com/alanorth/hugo-theme-bootstrap4-blog

How can I work around this issue until it is fixed? This completely breaks functionality. Am I doing something wrong?

It actually does build many of the pages, but from what I can tell, not all of them.

Thank you all sincerely.

I’m pretty sure this is:

And should be patched in the latest Hugo (and the underlying bug is fixed in upcoming Go 1.8).

SInce you claim that you have built the latest Hugo, I suggest you double check that; build with make and post the output of hugo version.

I apologize. It seems I have not built the latest hugo. How exactly do I go about doing this? Below you can see me attempting:

CAM-MacBook-Pro:FOLDERNAME username$ hugo version
Hugo Static Site Generator v0.17 BuildDate: 2016-10-07T21:42:05+07:00
CAM-MacBook-Pro:FOLDERNAME username$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/spf13/hugo
CAM-MacBook-Pro:hugo username$ hugo version
Hugo Static Site Generator v0.17 BuildDate: 2016-10-07T21:42:05+07:00
CAM-MacBook-Pro:hugo username$ git checkout master
Already on 'master’
Your branch is up-to-date with ‘origin/master’.
CAM-MacBook-Pro:hugo username$ git pull
Already up-to-date.

See which executable you’re overwriting:

$ which hugo

Then, assuming that version is in $GOPATH/bin:

$ git pull
$ govendor sync
$ make check
$ go install

This process does not seem to update my version of Hugo. I’m sorry I guess at this point this has more to do with my understanding of environment/etc than Hugo.

make check does not build Hugo, try make install

Thank you for your help. I am still getting the same result.

Sorry, that should have been make install, not go install.

Try this then:

$ ls -l /Users/username/dev/go/bin/hugo # just to see timestamp
$ rm /Users/username/dev/go/bin/hugo
$ ls -l /Users/username/dev/go/bin/hugo  # expect to find no file
$ which hugo ; hugo  # just to confirm that it has been deleted
$ make install
$ /Users/username/dev/go/bin/hugo # expect to find file now

Thanks everyone. The latest dev version is working like a charm. This is indeed patched. :slightly_smiling:

Hugo is great.

Thanks for your persistence. Turns out I had hugo installed in two places and indeed needed to be running “make install”.
