Have you got aws and docker commands available in the environment?

Insert a line - set -x just above the ecr get-login line - hopefully it will display the actual commands executed.

  • Thanks @122588 i already solved the issue, i will post the answer. Issue occur because code deploy role permission issue.

Code Build Service Role automatically created in Code Pipeline was unable to access ECR, thats why i was getting exit status 255.

Solved the issue by atttaching policy AmazonEC2ContainerRegistryPowerUser to Codebuild role created.
