RHEL7/CentOS7 may use old versions of git. Here’s how to update (using git 2.33.1 as example). You might save some frustration by running “sudo yum remove git” first.
sudo yum -y install curl-devel GITVERSION=2.33.1 mkdir -p ~/src && cd ~/src wget https://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-$GITVERSION.tar.gz tar xf git-$GITVERSION.tar.gz cd git-$GITVERSION./configuremakesudo make install git --version
I had an issue once where the terminal needed to be restarted. I had removed yum’s git package and the shell was still looking for /bin/git for some reason. Starting a new terminal window fixed the issue. This happened in CentOS7.
