I get this error when updating through drush:

The commons directory could not be found within the modules directory at /data/drupal/community/profiles/commons, perhaps the project is enabled but has been deleted from disk.

This seems to happen with distros sometimes, any ideas on how to solve it?

Comments

Hi,

Can you post up your Drush command and can you double check the directory permissions please (I feel bad for asking, but it could be something simple!)

Cheers

Tom

Hi, thanks and no worries about asking. Permissions are 755. The error also happens on my MAMP dev folder with similar permissions.

Not sure what you mean by post up the command?

Best,
Gerben

Sorry I meant to ask if you are running something like 'drush up commons' or anything different

ah i see, I use drush up (which gives me updates for modules in the commons as well as sites folder).

Could you try 'drush up -v' and see what the output says

Status:Active» Postponed (maintainer needs more info)

Marking as postponed pending #5, however I suspect this may be related to this code in commons.profile:

<?php
/**
* Implements hook_update_projects_alter().
*/
function commons_update_projects_alter(&$projects) {
 
// Enable update status for the Commons profile.
 
$modules = system_rebuild_module_data();
 
// The module object is shared in the request, so we need to clone it here.
 
$commons = clone $modules['commons'];
 
$commons->info['hidden'] = FALSE;
 
_update_process_info_list($projects, array('commons' => $commons), 'module', TRUE);
}
?>

This is the output of drush up -v:

Same problem here when upgrading from 3 to 3.1
All the modules can be updated individually with drush up.
But "commons" cannot.
I think it's because it's not a module but a profile. And maybe drush don't know how to do it ?

This seems to be a Drush issue: Drush issue #1880362.

That issue also is in the "needs more info" state, so maybe somebody from here wants to provide necessary input there so we can get this fixed?

I am running into the same problem - any solutions?

I found this link - http://drupal.org/node/1476994

Then used drush dl commons - proceed to install - problems solved.

Version:» 7.x-3.x-dev

This just made a mess for me I had to roll it back.
Drush 6.0 Drupal 7.23

edit:
Any thoughts on a work around/fix?

The fix was fairly straightforward when I finally realized what was going on.
First drush (v6) had been duplicating modules into the sites/all/modules and not putting them into commons profile. Fixed duplicates then ran drush rr (registry rebuild)

Manually downloaded commons 7.x.3.x.dev, it duplicated a few modules in sites/all/modules so I moved all duplicates to profiles/commons. It also duplicated drush registry rebuild.
ran drush rr for all sites (this is multi-site)
ran drush updatedb for all sites, cleared all caches
ctools was duplicated and now giving issues. rebuild is not fixing it's new home -- updated to latest registry rebuild and it was fixed -- or maybe a cache issue....
Now oddly, links don't work on any page....this is weird, they are formatted...ok there is a them update I missed-- jquery error a.attributes is undefined... crap sounds obscure...

Status:Postponed (maintainer needs more info)» Fixed

Please start your upgrade process again following the process at http://docs.acquia.com/commons and re-open the issue if you're still having problems.

I have this error while trying to update commons (duplicate issue at #15 has nothing to do with this one).

I have a fresh install of commons 7.x-3.5 now trying to update to 7.x-3.8. This is a drush up -v:
