nix store repair - repair store paths
nix store repair [option…] installables…
- Repair a store path, after determining that it is corrupt:
# nix store verify /nix/store/yb5q57zxv6hgqql42d5r8b5k5mcq6kay-hello-2.10 path '/nix/store/yb5q57zxv6hgqql42d5r8b5k5mcq6kay-hello-2.10' was modified! expected hash 'sha256:1hd5vnh6xjk388gdk841vflicy8qv7qzj2hb7xlyh8lpb43j921l', got 'sha256:1a25lf78x5wi6pfkrxalf0n13kdaca0bqmjqnp7wfjza2qz5ssgl' # nix store repair /nix/store/yb5q57zxv6hgqql42d5r8b5k5mcq6kay-hello-2.10
This command attempts to “repair” the store paths specified by installables by redownloading them using the available substituters. If no substitutes are available, then repair is not possible.
During repair, there is a very small time window during which the old path (if it exists) is moved out of the way and replaced with the new path. If repair is interrupted in between, then the system may be left in a broken state (e.g., if the path contains a critical system component like the GNU C Library).
Common evaluation options:
- --arg name expr
Pass the value expr as the argument name to Nix functions.
- --argstr name string
Pass the string string as the argument name to Nix functions.
- --eval-store store-url
The Nix store to use for evaluations.
Allow access to mutable paths and repositories.
- --include / -I path
Add path to the list of locations used to look up <...> file names.
- --override-flake original-ref resolved-ref
Override the flake registries, redirecting original-ref to resolved-ref.
Common flake-related options:
Commit changes to the flake’s lock file.
- --inputs-from flake-url
Use the inputs of the specified flake as registry entries.
Don’t allow lookups in the flake registries. This option is deprecated; use --no-use-registries.
Do not allow any updates to the flake’s lock file.
Do not write the flake’s newly generated lock file.
- --override-input input-path flake-url
Override a specific flake input (e.g. dwarffs/nixpkgs). This implies --no-write-lock-file.
Recreate the flake’s lock file from scratch.
- --update-input input-path
Update a specific flake input (ignoring its previous entry in the lock file).
Options that change the interpretation of installables:
Apply the operation to every store path.
Operate on the store derivation rather than its outputs.
- --expr expr
Interpret installables as attribute paths relative to the Nix expression expr.
- --file / -f file
Interpret installables as attribute paths relative to the Nix expression stored in file. If file is the character -, then a Nix expression will be read from standard input.
- --recursive / -r
Apply operation to closure of the specified paths.
