Yup. Same for me.
...and I cannot coerce my High Sierra machine to compile the source, either.

I think the dependency is Qt which is the kstars development environment. It requires 10.14 and above.

So although Qt requires 10.13+ seems like C++17 (latest version of C++) requires 10.15+ for complete support. Although Kstars isn't using C++17 yet, the folks at KDE upgraded Craft a few months ago in preparation for C++17 by setting a minimum macOS version of 10.15. Kstars uses Craft to build releases.

If you can build the source yourself you should be able to get it to compile for a target of 10.13/10.14 (not using the current Craft environment). Obviously at some point Kstars will start using C++17 features which will require macOS 10.15+.

I've spent the last few days trying to compile it on High Sierra, it's a not go !!!! Many dependencies are not being supported as this OSX version is too old now.
Maybe Rob can figure it out.

The "error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'brew'" is a red-herring as I've been upgrading tons of brew stuff with this issue.

As installing all the requirements to be able to compile Kstars/Ekos is failing due to the OS being too old, I will repurpose my old Mac mini into a full dedicated Ubuntu.
Just to run the latest Kstars B)

Ah yeah, haven't even started compiling Kstars yet... been battling all that time with Brew's dependencies...
