Bug report #15352
Dissolve error : "local variable 'nElement' referenced before assignment"

I'm experiencing the same issue as described in this recent thread : #14612
But the solution that closes the thread doesn't work for me. I'm a Mac user, and I tried deleting the folder /Users/williambray/.qgis2/processing, but that doesn't solve the problem in QGIS, and folder returns when I load QGIS again.
The Mac OS build provider includes these notes in the readme :
"Known Issues - Processing Configuration
If you have problems enabling algorithm providers or running algorithms, try resetting the "path" to the problem provider. Do this by deleting whatever is currently in the path setting for the provider, Processing should then automatically find the builtin path."
But how does one reset the path to the problem provider in this case?

Sorry for the delay - thanks for your help Alexander. Here's the full error message, which results from running a model containing a Dissolve as its last step:

'/Users/williambray/.qgis2/python/plugins/processing' does not exist. the only contents of the python folder is the folder 'expressions'
I'm running the latest point release available for Macs (2.14.3) as indicated on the QGIS website.
Where does the code say this error is already fixed?
#10 Updated by Ben Bray about 5 years ago
- Status changed from Closed to Reopened
- Target version set to Version 2.14
This issue was erroneously closed without resolution.
Picking-up where we left-off...
1) I do not have a a Processing plugin installed in my user directory - '~/.qgis2/python/plugins/processing' does not exist.
2) I'm running the latest point release available for Macs (2.14.3) as indicated on the QGIS website.
Any suggestions on what to do next?
