[Update: weird fix] Too many levels of symbolic links?

I’ve been trying to install RasaX on my Ubuntu system using the Quick Install guide. However, whenever I try to run docker-compose up -d in /etc/rasa, the terminal shows me the following error:

Please help.

This might be a docker version issue - see here https://github.com/docker/for-linux/issues/711 (not identical but similar). What version of Ubuntu and Docker are you on?

I’m on Ubuntu 18.0.4 LTS, with the latest apt-get of docker.io and docker-compose. (Not on the work PC at the moment, will update)

I should note that the error in the github page you noted doesn’t havethe same cause as the one I’m getting. (Theirs has to do with a service being busy, mine has to do with… whatever mine has to do with.)

I’ve managed to get the docker-compose fully finished by removing all references to RASA_VERSION and replacing them with 1.6. I think there’s something wrong with the way the 1.7 image has been defined? Not really experienced with docker, but that’s the most educated guess I have.

RASA_VERSION is an environmental variable - what was its value? You should be able to set its value once, and have that be read wherever it is referenced.

@ActuallyAcey to clarify, you were able to get it running on 1.6 but not 1.7?

I was able to get it running when I replaced the RASA_VERSION variable with 1.6 specifically. I don’t think I tested it on 1.7.

Okay. So seems like the issue was the references somehow?

Yes, I think so.
