Build container Docker rasa/rasa with variant in Spanish

Hi! I am trying to build with docker container that contains the Spanish variant of spacy. For this, it occurred to me to create a dockerfile with the following information:

FROM rasa/rasa:1.10.12-spacy-en
RUN python -m spacy download es_core_news_md && \
    python -m spacy link es_core_news_md es

And a docker-compose with the following:

version: '3.3'
    build: .
      - 'data:/var/www/html/docker/volumen'
      - '5013:5013'
      - 5013
      - init
  data: {}

But I get the following error:

root@umsa-SWF-0:/var/www/html/docker/imagen# docker-compose up -d --build

Could you help me? I am very lost with the docker world :dizzy_face:

Hey @matias18233 I think You are trying to install the package to a system folder which you don’t have permissions, have you tried using

sudo docker-compose up -d --build Building umbot instead ?

Hi @jusce17!

Thank you very much for your answer. I made the modification you suggested but I still have the same problem :disappointed_relieved:

I managed to get it working! I had to add ** USER root ** in my dockerfile as it was running under the wrong user: ** USER 1001 **, which came from rasa’s dockerfile.

I share the full dockerfile in case someone runs into the same problem in the future:

FROM rasa/rasa:1.10.12-spacy-en
USER root
RUN python -m spacy download es_core_news_md && \
    python -m spacy link es_core_news_md es

Thank you @jusce17
