Intallation Errors

Hi, I successfully installed Rasa X CE via docker on ubuntu 18. However, I am unable to retrieve the me password.

This is the error

python create admin me password

Traceback (most recent call last):

What I am i supposed to do?

Am I correct in assuming you’re following the Quick Installation? If so, the command you want is

sudo python create --update admin me PASSWORD

notice the sudo and the --update. Replace PASSWORD with your desired password.

If the problem persists after fixing that, can you try using 0.19.2 instead of stable?

@erohmensing response should get you sorted. Use the commands she listed, and also try 0.19.2, I have had issues using stable vs 0.19.2 -
