Hi everyone

Getting the following error from the CloudPlow command in CRON - is this common with other users? If not- what do I need to do to fix it?

2019-05-31 00:00:03,531 - ERROR      - git                  - latest_version                 - Exception retrieving the latest commit id:

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

just curious, what do you use cloudplow for?

I see that it is running on my PG system also, but I am not getting any errors. It looks to mainly cleanup hidden files fom unionfs, but we don't use that anymore. Mergerfs is used, so maybe this is obsolete now?

Yeah I didn't install it manually - it must be a part of 8.6.3 PGBlitz?

I haven't edited any of it- so if it's creating errors, it's doing it on it's own.

Should this be removed or can I hash it out of CRON?
