Docker deploy to app platform fails while local build succeeds (/proc/1/mem: input/output error)

Hi there! I just tried to deploy a new Docker app to the app plattform and keep getting a strange error while attempting to run a simple apk update:

No cached layer found for cmd RUN apk update 
[2021-12-06 10:17:58] error building image: error building stage: failed to optimize instructions: read /proc/1/mem: input/output error
[2021-12-06 10:17:58] 
[2021-12-06 10:17:58] command exited with code 1
[2021-12-06 10:17:58] du: /proc/203: No such file or directory
[2021-12-06 10:17:59]  ! Build failed (exit code 1)

Building locally works just fine and I’m using the same Dockerfile with other projects where it works without a complaint.

Any ideas?

I figured my issue out in the end. Even though the deployment failed at the first RUN command the actual issue was further down.

The COPY .. /app/ statement tries to access a directory outside of my project and that’s what made the whole build fail. I changed it to COPY . /app/ and everything worked.

FROM webdevops/php-apache:8.0-alpine


COPY docker/config/provision/ /opt/docker/provision/

RUN docker-service enable cron \
    && apk update \
    && apk add --no-cache libpng-dev g++ make bash zlib-dev nano php8-bcmath php8-mysqli php8-pdo php8-pdo_mysql redis \
    && echo "APP_KEY=" > .env

COPY composer.json composer.lock /app/

RUN composer install --ignore-platform-reqs --no-scripts

COPY .. /app/

RUN composer run-script post-autoload-dump \
    && php artisan key:generate \
    && chown -R application:application * \
    && find . -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \; \
    && find . -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \; \
    && find /opt/docker/bin/service.d/* -type f -exec chmod 775 {} \;

ENTRYPOINT ["/opt/docker/bin/"]
CMD ["supervisord"]

Hi There, What droplet are you using in DO ?

Also, can you put the Dockerfile or docker-compose file here ?
