Every time I pull from github I see this
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree submodule update --init
fatal: No url found for submodule path 'APP NAME' in .gitmodules
Completed with errors, see above
This started happening suddenly. The project has no submodules. This doesn't occur with command-line git, only with source tree. I'm on version 2.6.1 on MacOS 10.12.6
How do I resolve this error?
Hi Cliff, looks like you might have some .gitmodules directory somewhere within your repo. If you have no submodules, delete
.gitmodules, and any references to submodules in .git/config.
I also found a couple of posts where users seem to have a similar issue, you can check their responses at No submodule mapping found in gitmodule for a path that's not a submodule and No submodule mapping found in gitmodules for path.
Let us know if that helped you!
Hi Ana, thanks for your reply. I should have mentioned that there is no .gitmodules folder present within .git nor any references to submodules within .git/config
I checked with the following commands:
bash-3.2$ cd .git
bash-3.2$ find . |grep odules
bash-3.2$ grep -i odules config
I'm curious that this only happens when using SourceTree and not when using the command-line tools.
