Hey Benjamin,

I saw this error too... But since reflector was really a one time
thing i just did -Rns. --force shouldn't break anything.

The recommended way is to get the conflicting file out of the way (eg
move it to a backup) and do a normal update, *without* --force. It's

Don't force it, it is from running reflector as root, just remove the
directory
