image: maven:3.3.9

  docker: true
      - step:
            - maven
            - docker build -t $IMAGE_NAME .
            - docker login --username $DOCKER_HUB_USERNAME --password $DOCKER_HUB_PASSWORD
            - docker push $IMAGE_NAME
            - database

Hey guys, i was having similar issue - 

What i realize is that, my dockerfile name was DockerFile [in the repo] but bitbucket pipeline is looking for Dockerfile. 

If this is the case just rename DockerFile to Dockerfile 

Thanks me later 

I am having the same issue. 

All I did was use the default docker pipeline script (and swapped out the placeholders) and I am getting the same error. 

I've got the same problem. @SeanHashi @kdao_dev did you find any solution?

I've got the same issue, we only copied the pipeline example from bitbucket and doesn't work.

One suggestion - try adding `ls -lR` to one of your build steps. Perhaps you are actually missing the file in the folder where the build is run?

This helped me with my problems.

I have the same issue... and I have the DockerFile in root dir (working space in Pipeline).

¿Any idea?

This is often actually a file not found error - check you've actually committed & pushed your Dockerfile to the bitbucket repo properly and it's correctly named and referenced.
