macOS xcrun: error: Invalid active developer path, missing xcrunmacOS

I recently upgraded my OS and ran into this error when I tried any git operation on my macbook.

$ git pull
xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools),
missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun

After doing some research, I found the fix is pretty straight forward. Install the Xcode toolkit! Even if you had it installed before, you might have to re-register it or update it to the latest version.

$ xcode-select --install

If that doesn’t work, force it to reset. You’ll need sudo access for this one.

$ sudo xcode-select --reset

If that fails, go to the Appledeveloper download sectionand download Xcode manually.
