FileZilla not available as homebrew cask any more

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/07

After an outrage about AdWare mid last year on the Windows side of things, a new outrage on the Mac side of things at the end of last year caused FileZilla to be removed from the homebrew cask repository.

They do not care that there is a non-bundle version that (right now) does not have adware, as FileZilla could put AdWare in that version at any moment in time.

After trying to update, it will disappear, and you might get an error like this (a full log is below the fold):

"Error: Cask 'filezilla' is unavailable: No Cask with this name exists."

Too bad, as FileZilla was fun while it lasted.

For the dare devils, you might want to try the non-bundled version at fosshub, but please run it through at least VirusTotal before installing, and remember: you have to trust yet another man-in-the-middle!

As homebrew did not updated FileZilla, but FileZilla indicated there was an update, I tried to update through homebrew: it failed with Error: No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen

$ brew cask install filezilla
Warning: Cask 'filezilla' is already installed.

To re-install filezilla, run:
  brew cask reinstall filezilla

with debugging if you file an issue. If everything you use Homebrew for is
working fine: please don't worry or file an issue; just ignore this. Thanks!

Warning: Homebrew's sbin was not found in your PATH but you have installed
formulae that put executables in /usr/local/sbin.
Consider setting the PATH for example like so
  echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile

Warning: Broken symlinks were found. Remove them with `brew prune`:
  /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.5.0/bin/bundle
  /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.5.0/bin/bundler
$ brew prune
Pruned 2 symbolic links and 492 directories from /usr/local
$ echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile
$ export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"
$ brew doctor
Your system is ready to brew.
