Error updating my GrovePi

Hi followed the instructions here.

cd /home/pi/Desktop/GrovePi
sudo git fetch origin
sudo git reset --hard
sudo git merge origin/master

But, I keep getting this error:
> Updating 6d5defb…2a290f1

 error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
 Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.

Any notion what might be going on?

I am not a got expert, so not sure. However take a look at the got docs.

Hi @mikethechap,

It looks like you might have modified the file . If so, copy this file to a new location and restore to its default in the …/Software/Python/ location. Also if you are using Raspbian for Robots image, we have a DI_Update Icon on the Desktop, this allows you to update the software and firmware by double clicking on it and choosing GrovePi.


Thanks, Graykevinb and Shoban. I’ll try to replace the file as suggested.
