I am installing devstack icehouse on my Ubuntu 14.04 machine. When I run the command ./ , it ended with an error

--os-image-url image-create --name cirros-0.3.1-x86_64-uec --is-public True --container-format ami --disk-format ami

  • exit_trap
  • local r=1 ++ jobs -p
  • jobs=
  • [[ -n '' ]]
  • exit 1

I have tried to reinstall the devstack after running command ./ But this error doesn't disappear.

Can anyone suggest the reason behind this issue and how this error can be resolved?

I have resolved this issue. I have disabled the Swift and then run ./ By doing this installation completed without any error. But I don't have any idea why it worked with Swift disabled but not with Swift enabled. I also want to install Swift in the openstack. Can anyone give some insight how this can be done without any error? Thanks

I ran into the same issue and disabling swift resolved it. No idea why but I haven't addressed it since I don't need swift in my environment.

Can you try this as root pip install --upgrade setuptools seemed to fix the issue for a few people. Using this as a reference .

Running the command as root does not solve the issue
