ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests' in Docker container


The user is facing a ‘ModuleNotFoundError’ for the ‘requests’ module while running a Docker container for a connector. They have added ‘RUN pip install requests’ to the Dockerfile but are unsure why it failed. The error occurs when the code tries to import ‘requests’ in the connector’s source code.


<@U04SE163WC8> Spec step failed while running with docker with this error ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests'

I have added the RUN pip install requests line to the Dockerfile. But I don’t know why it failed

I see requests ==2.31.0 in pip list.

Based on the information provided in the extracts, it seems like you have correctly added the RUN pip install requests line to your Dockerfile. However, the error message indicates that the ‘requests’ module is not found when the Docker container is running. One possible reason could be that the ‘requests’ module is installed in a different Python environment and not in the environment where your code is running inside the Docker container. Here’s a sample Dockerfile from the Airbyte tutorial that installs Python dependencies: Dockerfile FROM python:3.9-slim WORKDIR /airbyte/integration_code RUN pip install requests COPY . COPY spec.json . ENTRYPOINT ["python", "/airbyte/integration_code/"] LABEL LABEL io.airbyte.version=0.1.0 ENV AIRBYTE_ENTRYPOINT='python /airbyte/integration_code/' In this Dockerfile, the RUN pip install requests command installs the ‘requests’ module in the Python environment inside the Docker container. If you have followed a similar approach and the error still persists, it might be helpful to check the following: - Ensure that the ‘requests’ module is not being installed in a virtual environment that is not active when the Docker container is running. - Check if there are any errors during the Docker image build process that might prevent the ‘requests’ module from being installed. - Try rebuilding the Docker image after clearing any cached layers to ensure that the ‘requests’ module is installed. If the issue persists, you might want to seek further assistance on the Airbyte forum or Slack channel.

<@U04SE163WC8> l don’t see an issue while installing requests the same error persists.
