I apologize if this is not the right place to post on the subject.
I got an error while FreeCAD-daily was updating today - a syntax error in /usr/lib/freecad-daily/MOD/Draft/Draft.py
there is a missing closing bracket on line 3701

I think you need to make sure the upgrade process went properly.

Unfortunately this cannot be done in the GUI.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

/home/nsamba/.FreeCAD/Mod/Cfd/InitGui.py
What is the Cfd module? Could it be that it links against an older version of SMESH?

Is it possible to remove those faulty modules using freecadcmd?

The issue is now solved by deleting both the assembly and Cfd modules.
Thanks for your support!

You have to add the daily ppa: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Install_on_Unix. BTW: a more descriptive title might help you and others, something like "HowTo install FreeCAD 0.18 on Ubuntu?".
