This is a similar problem to I need help with 'mix deps.get' command
but I tried updating brew and reinstalling Erlang and elixir still its not working for me.
erlang otp 21
elixir version 1.7.3
Could not find Hex, which is needed to build dependency :jsex
Shall I install Hex? (if running non-interactively, use “mix local.hex --force”) [Yn] Y
Any other idea why its not working?
Have you tried
mix local.hex --force? How long is it not responding? How are you connected to the internet? Firewalls, proxies or something else that might interfere?
mix local.hex --force never responds for me.
I don’t think firewalls and proxies will be interferring as I tried using my mobile wifi connection which dnt have any firewalls and proxies that can interfere.
On a mobile data plan most providers do actually a lot… but as the symptoms are the same on mobile and regular data plan, I assume it’s related to your computer.
Therefore I’m out of ideas at this point. Someone else has to take over.
