IMPORTANT: IF YOUR LAUNCHER DOES NOT START AFTER THE NEW UPDATE RUN rm ~/.minecraft/launcher -rf in a terminal

@andreymal, yannl35133, same here. I also solved that by removing symlink and creating a normal folder. Turns out that new versions of the launcher do not recognize symlinks for some stupid reason, which results in this weird behaviour.

I have the same problem with ~/.minecraft symlink. Replacing it with a bind mount helps.

yannl35133 commented on 2021-03-10 22:54

My ~/.minecraft is a symlink. It worked well, but now it doesn't and goes in an infinite loop.

Thank you @huantian Removing "$HOME/.minecraft/launcher/" was the solution.

ArkadSt commented on 2021-03-10 19:15

Alright, now it works for some stupid reason

huantian commented on 2021-03-10 18:07

Was able to solve the same issue as @jpegxguy by deleting the .minecraft/launcher/ directory

Daniikk1012 commented on 2021-03-10 17:17

Same error as @jpegxguy, solved by clearing .minecraft, cd-ing into newly created .minecraft/bin directory and running launcher from there. No errors or infinite loops with this approach

ArkadSt commented on 2021-03-10 16:52

Same here. @jpegxguy that's not a proper solution. I have cleared .minecraft folder and started minecraft-launcher 915-1. After downloading launcher files it closed and, according to the console output, it went into an infinite loop.

UPDATE: Solved! I downgraded to 887-2 and ran it, it updated some core files, then updated to the 917 package again. Now it runs. It seems like you need to have launched the previous version one last time before you go for the package update.

Hi, I just updated to v915 and the launcher immediately closes:
