Fix the 'gcloud command not found' error in macOS

  1. Download google-cloud-sdk.tar.gz, and unzip it. Place the unzipped folder whenever you want (I've place it in the macOS Applications folder).

  2. Go to the folder:

cd /Applications/google-cloud-sdk
  1. Install the package:
  1. While running the installation:
Modify profile to update your $PATH and enable shell command completion?

Do you want to continue (Y/n)?  

  1. By default, the executable will modify the /Users/Erik/.bash_profile file, but after installation, if you execute gcloud --version and the command is not found, reinstall the package and replace /Users/Erik/.bash_profile with ~/.profile.

  2. Restart the terminal.
