In my Mac, I'm running minikube, version minikube version: v1.24.0 commit: 76b94fb3c4e8ac5062daf70d60cf03ddcc0a741b

with VirtualBox, with this command minikube start --vm-driver virtualbox --docker-env=[REGISTRY_PATH="myregistrypath/",BASE_VERSION=local] -p mymachine

I'm using docker-compose to run the docker images. The relevant part of my docker-compose.yaml is

version: "3.7"
      context: .
      dockerfile: build/base/Dockerfile
    image: mymachine/base:${MYMACHINE_BASE_VERSION}
    command: /bin/false

The Dockerfile corresponding to this begins with:

FROM python:3.8-slim
ENV DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
RUN apt-get update

The python image is retrieved correctly but the apt-get update command fails. This was working correctly some days ago. Now it's not, I haven't changed anything from my side as far as I know.

The error I'm getting is:

Step 3/10 : RUN apt-get -y update

Any idea how to fix this?

  • I'm unable to reproduce that problem locally. Have you tried pulling a new version of the python:3.8-slim image (docker pull python:3.8-slim)?

  • I changed to the 3.8 bullseye and that fixed the issue. I still have no idea what the problem is. I think It has to be a problem with my machine or configuration, because the other image is working on other machines
