Since upgrading to Pop!_Os 22.04 I keep on getting the error code 159 and can’t load anything on Brave whether it be a webpage, private tab, or even the settings. I’m not sure how to fix this error and can’t find anything on the error code I’m having. If anyone has any insight on this issue it be greatly appreciated.
My issue has been fixed. Check out theflexcrush’s solution in the comments below.
I am a community member too. I can’t help with your issue, sorry. I know nothing about Linux and am not tech savvy. Just curious and have a couple of questions if you don’t mind.
Were you able to upgrade to the latest Brave Release version (1.38.109) as indicated in the topic below?
If available, did you try “-no-sandbox-option” (whatever that means). I found an old Linux OS post that was able to open Brave with this option. It was closed with no response so not much help otherwise.
Even though it is not your specific Linux flavor, I am wondering if this would work in your situation so you could at least open Brave and see if can troubleshoot your problem.
Did you see the Brave article for Linux installations? Posted link below. It might give you some ideas… maybe… hope so…
Hopefully, someone who actually knows what they are talking about will pop in and help!
I spent hours on this and last night I came across you post, hoping it had generated a fix. I did find a fix today, and feel silly because I missed the problem repeatedly. I have tried the following on two computers and it has worked both times:
When we updated to 22.04, it removed the source entry for Brave, so when we update/upgrade, Brave doesn’t get it. You can follow the directions here https://brave.com/linux/ - but only do the second and third step (curl and echo) - or copy and paste from below. I assume you already did the first step, then after you update and upgrade, Brave should be fixed!
