Trouble downloading homebrew


Hello All!

I am attempting to download Homebrew on Terminal in MacOS and I am entering /usr/bin/ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL” and am then prompted by “>” to enter my admin password. I type my password and it is visible, but when I hit enter it simply populated the next line of the terminal with “>”. Please help!


Can you show us a screenshot please (obviously without the password being shown)


Here is a screenshot of the text. “a” of course is an example but you can see the password prompt repeating even when my admin pass is used.


You didn’t close out the quotes. You need to add a " at the end of the command. That is why it is waiting for more input, because it recognises the command hasn’t been finished.
