Failed App deployment


I am trying to deploy just a worker from github. My dockerfile looks like that:

>FROM python:3.10.6
> COPY log log
> COPY src src
> COPY requirements.txt requirements.txt
> RUN pip install --upgrade pip
> RUN pip install -r requirements.txt
> CMD python

But during deployment I get the error:

> INFO[0001] Executing 0 build triggers                   
> [2022-11-17 21:58:10] │ error building image: error building stage: failed to optimize instructions: failed to get files used from context: failed to get fileinfo for /.app_platform_workspace/log: lstat /.app_platform_workspace/log: no such file or directory
> [2022-11-17 21:58:10] │ INFO[0001] Building stage 'python:3.10.6' [idx: '0', base-idx: '-1'] 
> [2022-11-17 21:58:10] │ 
> [2022-11-17 21:58:10] │ command exited with code 1

Any idea what I wrong?

Hi there,

Have you tried removing the COPY log log line? It seems like that the log directory does not exist so the App Platform is failing to copy it.

Let me know how it goes!
