brew update is stuck

There is no output, no errors, no nothing. It just sits there.

Maybe related to this, who knows?

So I reinstalled brew.

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

But then the install process is stuck at this line

==> /usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/xcode-select --switch /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools

After some googling, apparently it’s caused by some combination of osx and xcode, see here: So I ran the following to fix the issue. 

sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/

But then after Ctrl-C and reinstall brew, I got stuck at another line, seems like it did a git reset HEAD but stuck right after.

I tried a few other things but nothing could pass that point. Then just random guessing I checked my Software Update, and saw a 5Gb osx update sitting there waiting, I was like, why not?

So update osx, reboot, then magically brew starts working. =)
