homebrew woe

brew cask install corretto8

Error: Cask corretto8 exists in multiple taps:

  homebrew/cask-versions/corretto8

  caskroom/versions/corretto8

means “you ran both

brew tap caskroom/versions (the old way to access cask versions)

and

brew tap homebrew/cask-versions (the new way)

guess they have some special magic sauce to treat the old way “as if it works” but if you do both it causes collisions, as underneath it is using the new way.  Same repo.  Yep, go figure.

Fix:

brew untap caskroom/versions
