Try realm.write crashes (SIGABRT)


My app crashes after updating to the latest Realm version. The crash occurs after the first View Controller is loaded (ViewDidLoad) while trying to write to realm. The crash occurs before the function inside try realm.write {} is being executed.

I’m not sure how to interpret the error info, so I’m pasting everything here + I uploaded a screenshot:

    0x1ad10e914 <+0>:  mov    x16, #0x16b
    0x1ad10e918 <+4>:  svc    #0x80
->  0x1ad10e91c <+8>:  b.lo   0x1ad10e934               ; <+32>
    0x1ad10e920 <+12>: stp    x29, x30, [sp, #-0x10]!
    0x1ad10e924 <+16>: mov    x29, sp
    0x1ad10e928 <+20>: bl     0x1ad102800               ; cerror_nocancel
    0x1ad10e92c <+24>: mov    sp, x29
    0x1ad10e930 <+28>: ldp    x29, x30, [sp], #0x10
    0x1ad10e934 <+32>: ret

Here is how I declare my Realm variable:
lazy var realm = try! Realm()

And here is how I perform a write transaction (the code that crashes):

        do {
            try realm.write {
        } catch {
            print("Unable to delete empty folders: \(error)")

Thank you.

It’s generally best practice to include the code that actually crashed, enough to where we can duplicate the issue. Also, include code as text please, no images so if we need to test it we can copy/paste.

You may also want to add a breakpoint in your code, well before the crash, and step up to the crash inspecting your vars to see which one isn’t what you expected

My bad. Below is the text in the picture:

[Added the code that crashed in the first post]
I’m pretty new to swift and I’m not sure how to inspect the variables prior to the crash. What I did is I included print statements and noticed that deleteEmptyFolders doesn’t even get executed. The app crashes when I do a do { try realm.write {} }

Note that I’m not including the deleteSection function code because even if it’s commented out, the app still crashes.

I was able to fix my issues by reproducing the steps listed in the accepted answer of this thread:

Since the accepted answer’s side effects have been removed by a script written by Kyle Fuller - deintegrate, I’ll post the proper workflow here:

Install clean:

$ sudo gem install cocoapods-clean
Run deintegrate in the folder of the project:

$ pod deintegrate


$ pod clean

Modify your podfile (delete the lines with the pods you don’t want to use anymore) and run:

$ pod install


I have this same issue but I installed via Carthage.
