Build version of the Debian stretch not found (`debian-python:3.7.4-stretch-build not found`)


For some reason I cannot base my image on the build version of the Debian stretch base image:

FROM balenalib/%%BALENA_MACHINE_NAME%%-debian-python:3.7.4-stretch-build

This results in the deploy hook error:

manifest for balenalib/raspberrypi4-64-debian-python:3.7.4-stretch-build not found

I have to switch to default (run) version:

FROM balenalib/%%BALENA_MACHINE_NAME%%-debian-python:3.7.4-stretch-run

which works, but I have to preinstall required packages, etc.
Am I missing something here?


I have pinged our main base-images team to see if there is something out of place :+1:

Hi @blazejewicz , some feedback from our base-images team here. There is a problem when compiling python-dbus (a package we ship in build variant) with python 3.7.4. Could you use the previous version 3.7.3-stretch-build or stay with the 3.7.4-stretch-run while this is being fixed?

Yes, it helped. That’s fine to use 3.7.3, I’d like to play with multi stage builds, hence I’ve tried to use build/run versions.
