Nvim Error when using Plugins

Created: 13 June 2023

When trying to use an NVim plugin you may run into the following error message:

1
Error executing lua ...path/to/some/vim/file.lua

This can happen due to a plugin update that was run or another plugin being installed that caused the working tree of the plugin to be out of date or in an invalid state

To fix this, you may want to try updating and cleaning your plugins. In my case, I am using VimPlug so the commands are:

1
:PlugUpdate
2
:PlugClean

Thereafter, quitting and reopening vim seems to usually fix the issue, if not then you may need to investigate the plugin itself
