The core error message is:

==> Pouring go-1.17.1.catalina.bottle.tar.gz
Error: No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen - /Users/bswen/Library/Caches/Homebrew/downloads/75b265788a94bd1340dc7dd08617b2168a20d861c310ab7a31d5904aa5aa62bd--go-1.17.1.catalina.bottle.tar.gz

2. What is a Bottle in HomeBrew?

Bottles mean ‘Binary Packages’ in HomeBrew.

According to this document:

Bottles are produced by installing a formula with brew install --build-bottle <formula> and then bottling it with brew bottle <formula>. This outputs the bottle DSL which should be inserted into the formula file.

If a bottle is available and usable it will be downloaded and poured automatically when you brew install <formula>. If you wish to disable this you can do so by specifying --build-from-source.

3. How to solve this problem?

According to the above process, I think I should install the golang 1.17 by myself. So I open my browser and goto ` https://golang.org/dl/ ` , download the golang 1.17 macos package and install it.

If you are using macbook pro and you can download go 1.17 directory as below:

https://golang.org/dl/go1.17.2.darwin-amd64.pkg

After install , I verify as follows:

➜  ~ go version
go version go1.17.1 darwin/amd64

then I install the app again:

➜  ~ brew install todoist
Updating Homebrew...
