Worked on Monterey.
Error: Could not cleanup old kegs! Fix your permissions on:
Sorry, something went wrong.
I'm really expected to recursively change ownership of my entire usr/local directory just because Homebrew told me to? A directory shared by all sorts of other applications and services? Ridiculous
Homebrew needs to work with the systems it is installing itself on. If there are permission issues then it needs to suggest sudo commands to the user that cover its specific requirements. Better yet provide a script for users to run under sudo to pre-create the dirs set permissions prior to install.
The closest I could come up with is the following. This make use of the users default group setting so other users can install homebrew utilities as well. Replace $GID if you want to use a different group, admin is a common one.
for name in Cellar Cask Homebrew Frameworks; do [ ! -d $name ] && sudo install -d -g $GID -m 0775 /usr/local/$name; done
