Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

What do you get as a result from the "apt-get install git" command?

Ok, that is what I suspected - you are using a Linux distribution that does not include git in its repositories.

You'll need to get it added.  A search for "install git on <my distribution>" is pretty much guaranteed to find you the answer to doing that.

we are running the pipeline, about 4 months it was working but then it stopped.  so something in the bitbucket distro changed about 4+ months ago.

I have tried to install git from the source, but when i try to build it 'make' is not installed.  whatever distro this is, i cannot seem to install much

That looks like a broken Ubuntu system to me - whilst git is not installed by default on Ubuntu, it's certainly in the repositories.  And make is installed by default.

So I'm a bit lost on what is happening in that install.

yes i have been trying to troubleshot this for a week now, building like 100 times.  Is there anyone i can contact about this?  Like i mentioned, it was working then stopped a few months ago.

All I can suggest is a support call over at https://support.atlassian.com/contact

Hi Chris,

Pipelines builds that run on our own infrastructure use Docker containers. For every step of your build, a Docker container starts (the build container) using the image you have specified in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml file.

The error you get is most likely related to the Docker image you are using as a build container rather than Pipelines. You can try specifying a different Docker image as a build container in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml file (perhaps one with Git preinstalled).

If you are still facing issues, you can create a support ticket using the link that Nic provided. In "What can we help you with?" select "Technical issues and bugs" and then Bitbucket Cloud as product. When you are asked to provide the workspace URL, please make sure you provide the URL of the workspace that is on a paid billing plan, to proceed with ticket creation.

Kind regards,
Theodora
