I am trying to install Tacker via Devstack. I am following this installation guide. I use same local.conf as in the guide. However, after running ./stack.sh, I see this error:

Requirement already satisfied: pyperclip===1.7.0 in /usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages (from -c /opt/stack/requirements/upper-constraints.txt (line 453))

You are using pip version 9.0.3, however version 19.3.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/stack/tacker-horizon/manage.py", line 18, in

I make the error more bold here :

File "/opt/stack/tacker-horizon/manage.py", line 18, in from django.core.management import execute_from_command_line ImportError: No module named django.core.management Error on exit

I see the warning before says consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command. I did that but I still see the same error.

Anytime I try to reinstall, I first run ./unstack.sh and ./clean.sh to make sure the environment is clean for the installation.

The first lines of file /opt/stack/tacker-horizon/manage.py include the following:

#!/usr/bin/env python

import os
import sys

from django.core.management import execute_from_command_line
..

Thus, according to the story here, manage.py should be OK.

I use Ubuntu 18.04 virtual machine in VMWare ESXi.

If anyone can advise me on this issue, I will be very grateful.

It seem you are using you are using different python distribution. Please make sure that you are using python3, and django is also installed in the py3 distribution.

dk@dk-VirtualBox:~/$ ll /usr/bin/python
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Apr 16  2018 /usr/bin/python -> python2.7*
dk@dk-VirtualBox:~/$ cd /usr/bin/
dk@dk-VirtualBox:/usr/bin$ sudo rm python
dk@dk-VirtualBox:/usr/bin$ sudo ln -s python3.6 python
dk@dk-VirtualBox:/usr/bin$ ll /usr/bin/python
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Jan  3 18:40 /usr/bin/python -> python3.6*

  • Thank you for your suggestion. Your solution looks similar to the one I found though I didn't try it. Thank you very much for your help. – mehdi sharifi Jan 9 at 20:59

This is how I resolved the issue. According to an answer in this question, I ran "from django.core.management import execute_from_command_line" in python command line and I saw same error. But when I run same thing in python3 command line, no error is given. Thus, it is apparent that python3 does have Django in its site-packages folder but python doesn't. Therefore, I changed the shebang line "#!/usr/bin/env python" in /opt/stack/tacker-horizon/manage.py to "#!/usr/bin/env python3". Then, I after running ./unstack.sh, I ran again ./stack.sh. The installation is successful now.
