Xcode-select –install fails for homebrew cannot use command line tools MacOS 13.1

So I had xcode command line tools installed already.

xcode-select --version

confirmed that it was there. However, installing the new version of python via HomeBrew failed saying it was not installed. Running

xcode-select --install

failed to install without further info as to why

xcode-select --reset followed by xcode-select --install failed
.

removing the xcode command line tools directory failed…

Manually downloading and reinstalling command line tools from the pkg .dmg file worked perfectly (but does require a free Apple Developer account).

xcode command line tools download from Apple

It reinstalled the same version and now command line tools works.
