Lab 13.1 needs to be updated for web-ui app cflinuxfs3 stack on anynines a9s


When deploying the web-ui app, I am attempting to stage the app but seeing an error for the anynines cloud foundry.

It relates to the manifest file specifying cflinuxfs2, whereas it appears this is outdated and cloud foundry on cflinuxfs3 will fail with this buildpack.

   It looks like you're deploying on a stack (currently set to *cflinuxfs3*) that's not supported by this buildpack.
   That could be because you're using a recent buildpack release on a deprecated stack.
   If you're using the buildpack installed by your CF admin, please let your admin know you saw this error message.
   If you at one point specified a buildpack that's at git URL, please make sure you're pointed at a version that supports this stack.

Error staging application: BuildpackCompileFailed - App staging failed in the buildpack compile phase

The manifest is stating to use cflinuxfs2, however it does not appear to respect the manifest setting for the stack.

Specifying the _-s cflinuxfs2 _override seems to indicate that there is no staging available for that stack. Possibly this stack has long been removed, so ** does the lab exercise needs to be updated?**

Switching to the latest buildpack will also fail, as Ruby 2.4.x is not available.

   -----> Ruby Buildpack version 1.8.30
   -----> Supplying Ruby

The resolution here is to switch to an earlier buildpack version that still contains Ruby 2.4.x but also works on cflinuxfs3.

cf push the web-ui app with the flag -s cflinuxfs3 and updated manifest.yml below (noting to use version 1.8.15 of the buildpack)

    Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. Can please someone update the files and documents for the course???

    I apologize for the issue here. It appears the download for the class is pointing to the wrong version of the class artifacts. I have requested for the LF team to resolve this.
