For a little while now (I can’t pinpoint it to a release, but it worked before) GoHugo seems to be unable to update modules that I updated recently. I have to manually delete the cache in the temporary directory to retrieve the current (latest) version. This leads to updates not arriving on Netlify in the end, where I can’t delete any the temporary cache. (Talking about
What I do:
- module is at v0.0.4 on github (tagged)
- changes to the module
- release a new version v0.0.5 to github
hugo mod get -u ./...on a website that uses that module
hugo mod tidyon that website
- if the module has some breaking changes (like for instance a new mediatype) that change is not found
- updates are loaded and site is working.
The third last step can’t be done on Netlify so the builds break for a while. I either have to disconnect the repo and re-connect or just wait and try later on.
Something changed, because before the
hugo mod get -u ./... immediately updated to new versions of the module.
I CAN manually change the version in go.mod, then run get and tidy again and it will work… but that somehow seems like something Hugo should do by itself.
Long story short: I would expect
hugo mod get -u ./... to update immediately to a new release version from Github, but it doesn’t. Is this a bug or does a new feature/procedure require a different approach?
PS: “delete cache and retry deploy” does NOT work on Netlify.
