manifest for balenalib/raspberrypi4-64-ubuntu-node:focal not found

I noticed similar posts re Pi3. I see the dockerfile in github, but not in dockerhub.

Hello @mm-e1

Welcome to the balena Forums.

Please could you provide some details of the problem that you are having and what you are trying to achieve.


Hi, (in a rpi 4) when I create a dockerfile using FROM balenalib/%%BALENA_MACHINE_NAME%%-ubuntu:focal which results in balenalib/raspberrypi4-64-ubuntu:focal , I get the error: that it is not found. I do not see this image in Dockerhub, but it appears that there is a dockerfile here: base-images/Dockerfile at master · balena-io-library/base-images · GitHub

Hi Michael - I can see the same thing as you: source for the images but none tagged with focal on dockerhub. I’ve asked a colleague for some expert help here - and we’ll get back to you when we work out what’s happened. Thanks for reporting this!

Hey there, we are still looking into why those images aren’t posted on Dockerhub, but in the meantime I wanted to provide you with a possible workaround.

In your Dockerfile.template if you replace %%BALENA_MACHINE_NAME%% with %%BALENA_ARCH%% you should be able to pull the balenalib/aarch64-ubuntu:focal base image which I confirmed exists. It’s mostly the same just missing a few raspberrypi-specific packages that you may not need.

You can compare the two dockerfiles here and see that the raspberrypi4-64 image is based on the aarch64 image.

Hi Michael,

Just want to let you know that the balenalib/raspberrypi4-64-ubuntu:focal is now available, there was an issue with a package we install for raspberrypi family base images that broke the build.

Please let us know if you need further support.

Thanks so much!
