Hugo v0.54.0/extended darwin/amd64 fails to build

Hi!
I am using Hugo with Academic them and was working fine. I even got my page to be published. But recently for some reason I ran into this problem, not sure if it is because a newer version: theme: get v4.1

Here is the error message:

Total in 130 ms
Error: Error building site: failed to render pages: render of “home” failed: execute of template failed: template: index.html:4:3: executing “index.html” at <partial "widget_page…>: error calling partial: “/Users/DC/Desktop/Coding/My_Website/themes/academic/layouts/partials/widget_page.html:23:9”: execute of template failed: template: partials/widget_page.html:23:9: executing “partials/widget_page.html” at <partial $widget $par…>: error calling partial: Partial “widgets/blank.html” not found

This is file line the error is pointing at:

– Widgets –
{{ range $index, $page := where (where .Data.Pages “Section” $section) “.Params.active” “!=” false }}
{{ params := dict "root" “page” $page }}
{{ $widget := printf “widgets/%s.html” ( or $page.Params.widget “custom” ) }}
{{ if in (slice “hero” “hero_carousel”) $page.Params.widget }}
{{ partial $widget $params }}
{{ else }}
<section id="{{ $page.File.TranslationBaseName }}" class=“home-section”>
<div class=“container”>
{{ partial $widget $params }}
</div>
</section>
{{ end }}
{{ end }}

Any help is much appreciated!

Per the error message, it cannot fine this widget partial:

Partial “widgets/blank.html” not found

You’d need to share your code for us to help further.

Thanks for reply. I don’t have that particular file either . How can I remove it from calling this file. Or what other file/code can I provide to help for this

I would need to see your full site code in order to help. If you can’t provide that, then maybe someone else here can help you.

Thanks. My full site lives in github and can be found in this link: https://github.com/danny05158/My_Website

I cloned your site and was able to successfully build it with Hugo v0.54.0 and v0.55.0-DEV-C154C2F7 so there is something happening on your end.


Okay once I ran

git submodule update --remote --merge

to update the theme, I get your same error now.

You’ll need to refer to the Academic Migrate docs https://sourcethemes.com/academic/docs/update/#migrate-content

And the version 4.1 breaking changes https://sourcethemes.com/academic/updates/v4.1.0/#breaking-changes

Thank you! the reason was the update theme. I was able to look at docs
