Fatal: destination path 'bisq-desktop' already exists and is not an empty directory


#1

Linux Fedora latest version:
Upgrading bisq from 7.0 to 7.1 via https://github.com/bisq-network/bisq-desktop/blob/master/doc/build.md#build-bisq

The installer complains that the path ‘bisq-desktop’ already exists. Can I just remove this path with all content or do I need to backup anything before? Have for the next two weeks no access th the seed so I’d prefer to delete not too much …

Thanks for helping in advance.

If I were you, I would backup. It doesn’t cost much, and it’s more safe.
You can just rename it.


#3

You’re right. Will do it now this way. Of course I’m not sure if there isn’t data stored in other paths but in worst case I need to start from the scratch and use the seed as soon I can.

Thank you!


#4

You can just rename the whole ~/.local/share/Bisq directory .
So you miss nothing.

This is the directory where all the data are in Debian.
it’s probably the same place with Fedora.


#5

Yes it’s the same path. May be I copy/backup the ~/.local/share/Bisq because otherwise I assume I start with new empty accounts with 0 balance.

Thanks.

Yes, if you already had things, copy/backup is the best.
(And twice doesnt hurt.)
