I'm getting this error whenever I try to open Emacs:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-missing "Cannot open load file" "No such file or directory" "counsel")
  require(counsel)

I have my configuration as a org document, this the block that installs counsel,

  (use-package counsel
    :init
    :bind (("M-x" . counsel-M-x)
           ("C-x b" . counsel-ibuffer)
           ("C-x C-f" . counsel-find-file)
           ("C-M-j" . 'counsel-switch-buffer)
           :map minibuffer-local-map
           ("C-r" . 'counsel-minibuffer-history))
    :custom
    (counsel-linux-app-format-function #'counsel-linux-app-format-function-name-only)
    :config
    (counsel-mode 1)
    (setq ivy-initial-inputs-alist nil))  ;; Don't start searches with ^

I also tried installing counsel manually by M-x package-install but it didn't help either.

    I think you need a line :ensure t in that use-package stanza for it to install counsel. May 14, 2021 at 23:00
  • I was installing ivy and ivy-rich also, and for ivy-rich I had a :after ivy. I changed it to :after counsel it seem to have fixed it. But I'm not sure.

I'd recommend purging your elpa directory, and then restarting emacs:

$ cd ~/.emacs.d/elpa
$ rm -rf *
$ emacs
