Seems like pip in not setup correctly in ./env/bin

(or are you running from the frappe-bench folder?)

I have the same problem.

It seems, that the update mechanism is very shaky. I am running bench 3, ERPNext v7.
Now my system is broken and i dont know how to bring it back to live.

It is not a production system, but looking at production scenarios the update mechanism must be bulletproof… :slight_smile:

I found a hint from vjFaLk:
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev
This handles the error and interruption of the bench update.
After installing this missing package the update went successfully and the ERPNext started also without any problems.

Problem solved.

@Idat-Consulting, I faced a similar issue. This is how I fixed it:

  • cd to frappe-bench folder and run ./env/bin/pip install -q -e ./apps/frappe
  • run ./env/bin/pip install -q -e ./apps/
  • Add an entry for your app name to /sites/apps.txt
