How to Fix eacces permission denied unlink ‘/usr/local/bin/code’

To fix the eacces permission denied unlink ‘/usr/local/bin/code’ error, try running the command as a privileged user using this command: sudo rm /usr/local/bin/code. This should prompt you for your password and execute the rm command with elevated privileges.

When you try to delete Visual Studio Code without necessary permissions, it will throw an eacces permission denied unlink ‘/usr/local/bin/code’ error.

Alternatively, you can try changing the ownership or permissions of the file to allow you to remove it. This can be done with the chown and chmod commands, respectively. However, be careful when modifying file permissions, which can have security implications.

You can also try this solution: Uninstall the code command from PATH in VSCode and reinstall it. Then, open the command palette in VS Code using cmd + shift + p. Search “uninstall ‘code'” and select the first option to uninstall. Once uninstalled, “install ‘code'” for installing. That should fix it.
