It appears that in coreutils 9.0 and greater, the mv command is broken on
non-APFS filesystems on macOS. For example, on Apple tmpfs, it fails whenever
moving a file with ENOTSUPP.
I don't observe this problem with the latest development version of
coreutils. Here's how I tried to reproduce the problem on macOS 11.3.1
% touch /tmp/xxxx
% src/mv /tmp/xxxx /tmp/yyyy
and it worked OK.
I just put a copy of the latest coreutils source here:
Could you give it a try?
Possibly this is related to the other bug report you mention, since mv
falls back on cp's algorithm. But if so, I hope that the recent fix to
cp also fixed mv.
