"...has only 1 training examples! Minimum is 2, training may fail."

When I go to train my model with

rasa train

and the following pipeline:

language: en

pipeline:
  - name: SpacyNLP
  - name: SpacyTokenizer
  - name: SpacyFeaturizer
  - name: RegexFeaturizer
  - name: LexicalSyntacticFeaturizer
  - name: CountVectorsFeaturizer
  - name: CountVectorsFeaturizer
analyzer: "char_wb"
min_ngram: 1
max_ngram: 4
  - name: DIETClassifier
epochs: 100
  - name: EntitySynonymMapper
  - name: ResponseSelector
epochs: 100

I get the following ERROR:

UserWarning: Intent β€˜immd_family/child_count’ has only 1 training examples! Minimum is 2, training may fail.

This doesn’t make sense, given that my nlu.yml file has the following:

- intent: immd_family/child_count
  examples: |
    - how many kids did mary have?
    - How many children did Joseph have
    - How many babies were born to Elizabeth?

That looks like three examples to me. What’s going on here?

Thanks for the help!

Maybe I’m just not quite sure exactly how to use the retrieval intents? I’ve tried reading the docs but I am still pretty confused regarding how and when to use them, why they are different or helpful from intents, and how I need to set up my documents in order for training to go smoothly.

@amn41 Any ideas here? I am still seeing this happen on other intents as well.

@agm this sounds like a bug. Would you be up for creating an issue with a minimal reproducible example? that would help a lot and we can get on fixing it.
