While following the great manual update instructions by @byteshiva & @hamelsmu, something happened at the “
git add” step (Step 7, after resolving/merging conflicts) that was not in the example. I got this:
$ git add . warning: adding embedded git repository: _sass/minima/minima hint: You've added another git repository inside your current repository. hint: Clones of the outer repository will not contain the contents of hint: the embedded repository and will not know how to obtain it. hint: If you meant to add a submodule, use: hint: hint: git submodule add <url> _sass/minima/minima hint: hint: If you added this path by mistake, you can remove it from the hint: index with: hint: hint: git rm --cached _sass/minima/minima hint: hint: See "git help submodule" for more information.
I didn’t know what this was about, or if it was imporant, and since it wasn’t in the example I just ignored it and kept going. But now my Fastpages blog won’t build anymore. The GitHub Action fails with the error:
No url found for submodule path '_sass/minima/minima' in .gitmodules
So,… should I go back up and…either add or remove that submodule? I’m out of my depth there.
