Pkg error in julia:latest Docker image

I’m having a problem with the julia:latest docker image. Upon attempting to build upon it, I get:

The command '/bin/sh -c julia -e "using Pkg; pkg\"activate . \"; pkg\"instantiate\"; "' returned a non-zero code: 1

This is the Dockerfile:

FROM julia:latest
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y supervisor && apt-get install htop
RUN mkdir -p /var/log/supervisor
COPY supervisord.conf /etc/supervisor/conf.d/supervisord.conf
COPY . /app
RUN julia -e "using Pkg; pkg\"activate . \"; pkg\"instantiate\"; "
CMD ["/usr/bin/supervisord"]

Do you have a copy of the Project.toml and Manifest.toml files that you are running instantiate on?

Thank you - here they are:

Oops, it might be because two of the packages are deved :-/

OK, yes, that’s it, sorry for the false alarm. It would be useful to throw a clear error if possible. Maybe something in the line of “Dev package Genie can not be found”.

I’m pretty sure we have a better error for that failure mode now.
