I follow the devstack installation steps:

When I execute this step:./ I get the below logs in the screen:

You see there is the error here:

cp: cannot stat '/opt/stack/keystone/etc/policy.json':

And there I tested the below information:

[stack@localhost devstack]$ cd /opt/stack/keystone/etc/
[stack@localhost etc]$ ls
default_catalog.templates  keystone.conf.sample  keystone-paste.ini  logging.conf.sample  policy.v3cloudsample.json  sso_callback_template.html

There is a policy.v3cloudsample.json, no the policy.json.

So, how to do with that when I install the devstack?

My VM system is CentOS 7.2.

I am using a fresh ubuntu 16.04 OS and getting the same error. Did you find any solution to it?

No, I setup openstack manually later.

I just hit this trying to run devstack on the stable/newton branch and was able to work around the problem by changing in devstack:

$ git diff
diff --git a/lib/keystone b/lib/keystone

Starting with Pike, Keystone doesn't ship /etc/keystone/policy.json anymore. Perhaps earlier DevStacks stumbled over this problem, but by now, you should be able to install stable/Pike or master without this hickup.
