Docker build failed: no such container:path


I have a docker container:

/usr/bin/docker run --volume /home/bamboo/builds/xml-data/build-dir/360449/WEBSITE-BD-JOB3:/home/bamboo/builds/xml-data/build-dir/360449/WEBSITE-BD-JOB3 --volume /var/atlassian/application-data/bamboo/temp:/var/atlassian/application-data/bamboo/temp --detach --name 511d9b8d-cd36-4d53-92c9-78a94c2be6795570564 --net=host shamilnunhuck/kaniko-debug:shell tail -f /dev/null

and I assume Bamboo is trying to copy my script over?

/usr/bin/docker cp /opt/atlassian/bamboo/temp/initialiseDockerContainer.sh7168219084128755568.tmp 511d9b8d-cd36-4d53-92c9-78a94c2be6795570564:/tmp/

However, it fails:

Error: No such container:path: 511d9b8d-cd36-4d53-92c9-78a94c2be6795570564:/tmp

Bamboo can delete the container, so I assume it's still running. Any ideas why it's failing?

Is this log output coming from a Docker task running a "Build a Docker image" command?

Also, what version of Bamboo are you running?

This is the output of the first task (which is a script) for.a job which is isolated by docker.


I'm using Bamboo 7.0.4. 

I'm sorry I may not be of much help - I've used Bamboo to build Docker containers, but haven't used isolated Docker containers to build apps.

FWIW: It would appear that Bamboo is attempting to load the image shamilnunhuck/kaniko-debug:shell in the first line.  I would guess that is failing and therefor why the cp command is failing.  When you run a docker image, it's possible for it to "succeed" however if the process running inside the container fails or quits, the container will stop and no longer be available.

If you have SSH access to your Bamboo server, you can try poking around in the Docker registry to see if that image exists - then try running it with the -i command instead of the --detach to see what's happening... just some ideas.

I figured it out - the tmp path didn't exist on the container.

LOL - so exactly what the error said... of course!

Glad you figured it out!

Which was the problem? Im suffering a similar issue on my Bamboo instance.

@Jack Nolddor [Sweet Bananas] The container didn't have a /tmp directory in it
