Yarn install fails

Yarn install fails on random package but always shows same kind of error "Extracting tar content of undefined failed, the file appears to be corrupt: "ENOENT: no such file or directory, "

Extracting tar content of undefined failed, the file appears to be corrupt: "ENOENT: no such file or directory, chmod '/usr/local/share/.cache/yarn/v6/npm-@babel-core-7.12.10-b79a2e1b9f70ed3d84bbfb6d8c4ef825f606bccd-integrity/node_modules/@babel/core/lib/transform-ast.js'"

It seems to working in any machine except the bitbucket pipeline I have issues with.

@Theodora Boudale  For us, this happens intermittently every day.

"yarn install --network-concurrency 1" helps, but doesn't solve it.

Sometimes it only resolves after clearing the pipeline cache.

We're seeing this issue as well. Always via bitbucket pipeline only with the following command.

- yarn install
To solve we must use the following

- yarn install --network-concurrency 1
The image we use on our pipeline is 
image: node:16

We only began encountering this when using yarn. The issue never occurred with npm

I see this issue consistently on bitbucket pipelines and never on the local with same code.

Workaround is to set network concurrency to 1 for yarn, which is not ideal as it drastically slows the install process: `yarn install --network-concurrency 1`

Hi @Balakrishnan S ,

Does the issue occur on every build or is it random failures?

Are you able to reproduce this error if you debug the build locally with Docker, as per the following documentation?

I would suggest debugging this locally as per the instructions above, by taking a clone of the repo, reset to a commit where you had a failed build with this error, and then test it with a Docker container that uses the same image as your Pipelines build.

If the same issue occurs when you debug this locally with Docker, this would indicate that the issue is most likely related to either the Docker image used for the build, the configuration or a dependency.

Please feel free to let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,

It happens for me all the time and I have moved to npm

I can confirm that this happens every time when I push to bitbucket but not when I run locally in a docker container
