Unable to install clippy?

#1

I’m trying to install clippy, but I seem to be missing something:

$ rustup component add clippy
error: component 'clippy' for target 'x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu' is unavailable for download

$ rustup --version
rustup 1.16.0 (beab5ac2b 2018-12-06)

EDIT: also I’m on the most recent nightly:

$ rustc --version
rustc 1.34.0-nightly (c1c3c4e95 2019-01-29)

What’s the output of rustup component list? Does it show clippy or clippy-preview? I think there have been issues where if you’ve already added clippy-preview, then the component name will not update without reinstalling rustup, even after running rustup self update.

Sometimes tools break in nightly, that may be what’s going on here.

Nope it’s not listed at all.

I’m guessing @steveklabnik is right. If you need clippy on nightly rust, try rustup update and then check again.

Clippy’s back! I always look at this before updating my nightly:
