Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

I am facing issue while installing simple chain code in hyperledger fabric 2.2.

~/go/src/github.com/hyperledger/fabric-samples/test-network$ peer lifecycle chaincode install simple_chaincode.tar.gz

    Hello Let's see if we can get to the bottom of this issue. Assuming you installed the dependencies correctly in Lab 2.1: Development Environment Setup please check to make sure that the docker-compose version is 1.14.0 or greater by running the following command, # docker-compose --version .
    Did you have any issues creating the chaincode package in the previous step in Lab 4.1: Step-by-Step SimpleChaincode Lifecycle Management? Bobbi

    @Bobbijn My docker-compose version is 1.25.0 and I was able to create chaincode package without any issues.

    Hello, next please check the syntax of the commands as it is important to execute them exactly .

  • @Bobbijn Yeah I did it 4, 5 times repeatedly but still the same issue.

  • Hello @kuldeep.narvekar do you solve this issue? I have running in the same error.
    Thanks in advance

    @teran92, Hello, I am understanding you are running into the same issue that @kuldeep.narvekar was having an issue with. Let's see if we can get to the bottom of this. An error of this type occurs with the Docker dependencies. Here are some additional resources for you that might help determine your issue. Please keep us posted as to your progress. Bobbi
