Getting fatal: reference is not a tree: on running command git submodule update --init

When I run the command git submodule update --init, I am getting the following error:
fatal: reference is not a tree: d80ee5f27b06e84d40a7d2758525b682aaba7d72
Unable to checkout 'd80ee5f27b06e84d40a7d2758525b682aaba7d72' in submodule path 'lib/onyx'

Any advice as to why I may b facing this?


  • Usually that means that the reference is to a commit that's not been pushed to the main repo. What repo are you running this on? It's possible that we didn't push some needed tag back up when we were preparing the 2.3.0-rc.2 release.
