    Hello all,
    A friend and I have been working on a project for the last month or so, using unity's collaborate feature. However, as of yesterday, we both updated to 2018.1 and Collaborate no longer works, when trying to download the changes my friend makes, i just get the error saying "No Such Local File" here's a quick clip

    The console also gives me this error

    [Collab] FindChangedFile failed:
    Cannot find changed file UnityPackageManager/manifest.json -> Packages/manifest.json

    any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

    Edit: Fixed it, for anyone else with the issue, Simply delete your project folder, then let unity redownload your project from the cloud, will automatically set it up correctly.

    I had the same issue and resolved it by moving UnityPackageManager/manifest.json to Packages/manifest.json and trying again.

    Same thing happened here. I disabled Collaborate in the Services menu, quit Unity and then deleted the 'Library > Collab' directory in the project folder. Restarted Unity, re-enabled Collaborate, and everything worked.

    I ran into this issue just now... ezonecom's solution seems to get Collab into a different state, but the issue now is that the local version of my colleague has tons of "updates" on files he never touched, but I just commited.

    Basically, after this experience (and a few others, less extreme ones) I'd say I better pray we never run into any conflicts again. Seems to be the conflict resolution in Collab is an absolute disaster and basically breaks the system.
