How do I update Homebrew?
When I ran:
I got a message saying it initialized an empty repository in
/usr/local/.git/, then I got this error:

- Discard all the changes (unless you actually want to try to commit to Homebrew – you probably don’t)
git statustil it’s clean
Alternatively you could update
brew by installing it again. (Think I did this as El Capitan changed something)
Note: this is a heavy handed approach that will remove all applications installed via brew!
Try to install brew a fresh and it will tell how to uninstall.
At original time of writing to uninstall:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/uninstall)"
