Rasa X Helm chart fails to install specified rasa open source version correctly

rasa open source 2.2.5 has a yaml parse bug in rasa/shared/core/domain.py which has been fixed in later versions via this commit: Added try except block · RasaHQ/rasa@30678a5 · GitHub

but installing Rasa X either via the helm chart with values.yml (by specifying tag: “2.2.8-full” ) or using the env var: export RASA_VERSION=“2.2.8” with the quick install script does not install the requested version, instead it always install rasa open source 2.2.5

kubectl exec [POD] [COMMAND] is DEPRECATED and will be removed in a future version. Use kubectl exec [POD] -- [COMMAND] instead.

Matplotlib created a temporary config/cache directory at /tmp/matplotlib-fx6o30bb because the default path (/tmp/.pip/matplotlib) is not a writable directory; it is highly recommended to set the MPLCONFIGDIR environment variable to a writable directory, in particular to speed up the import of Matplotlib and to better support multiprocessing.

Rasa Version     : 2.2.5
Rasa SDK Version : 2.2.0
Rasa X Version   : 0.35.0
Python Version   : 3.8.5
Operating System : Linux-5.4.0-1034-gcp-x86_64-with-glibc2.29
Python Path      : /usr/bin/python3

Upgrading the pod directly (ie. -it exec <rasa-x-pod-name> bash) also doesn’t work, as the pip install -U rasa==2.2.8 completes the install, but the 2.2.5 install is still present, uninstalling 2.2.5 fails with a permission error on the rasa binary, sudo / su within also fail…

So right now, any CI / CD github actions .yml (or alike) files cause the VCS integration to fail silently in rasa x
