Hi everyone,

I'm working on Exercise 10, and I'm having trouble running some of the provided pipelineruns in the examples.
Specifically, I'm see a segmentation error in the logs of the pipelineruns after they finish.

administrator@gitops-server:~/Documents/tekton-ci/base$ tkn pr logs -f result-ci
panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference
[signal SIGSEGV: segmentation violation code=0x1 addr=0x18 pc=0x184b988]

Description:   This is a pipeline template which performs the follwing tasks:
- Clones a subset of file for one microservice from a mono-repo
  e.g. vote/* result/* worker/* matching patterns provided.
- Lists all the files from the cloned workspace to validate if 
  it has cloned the correct subpath matching your microservice. 
- Builds a container image from the workspace which contains 
  the Dockerfile. It accepts imageUrl and imageTag params to 
  define the tag.  The same task also pushes the image to the 
Some of the additional  notable features of this template include:
- Cloned repo is passed to subsequent Tasks using a Workspace. 
- Orders Tasks in a Pipeline using "runAfter" so that
  git-clone completes before we try to read from the Workspace 
  to find the Dockerfile and build an image.
- Uses a volumeClaimTemplate Volume as a Workspace.
- Uses a secret generated with config.json and mounts it 
  as a worksapce with name dockerconfig to provide registry 
- Avoids hard-coded paths by using a Workspace's path
  variable instead.

    Hi @manniqui,

    The fact that you are having a panic and a SIGSEGV on Tekton is pretty bad. So, something is happening with the Tekton binary; it could be a bug (some a similar error on https://github.com/tektoncd/pipeline/issues/4297), or the associated software could be spoiled in some way.

    So I suggest to uninstall and reinstall Tekton and try again. If it fails, I'd say you can get a new VM and reinstall everything, including the OS and the cluster software.
