Brew updating everything and what to do when you run into problems.

A lot of times, when I update brew, I need to make a prayer before updating. Now when I every time I update, I do the following. And I haven't had a problem since.

Resetting brew formulas to be identical to their repositories.

brew update-reset

Then, as usual, update, upgrade, and cleanup.

brew update
brew upgrade
brew cleanup

In case of a problem, I run brew doctor, but I haven't had to do it since running update-reset.
