Package installation stuck


I am trying to install a library (FastAI). The problem is that the installation tasks seem to be stuck. I can see in the “Ongoing Operations” tab that the environment creation/cloning task and the library install task both progress until 22 out of the 32 hosts are “Done”. After that there is no more progress. I have been waiting for about 20 hours now with no further progress.

The same happens whether I try to install with Conda or PIP. I also tried installing the library on GPU hosts only with the same result. I suspect that the the problem must be somehow related to cloning the premade environment.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,


I’m currently looking into this issue. Am I correct in assuming that you are using and the project is named fastaitest?

Hi @Robin_Andersson,

Thanks a lot for looking into it. Yes, you are correct on both (actually it is called fastai_tests, to be precise).

Carlos is not being actively maintained anymore, which means that some functionality may not work. Also the hopsworks version on that cluster is 1.0. Instead we encourage new users to try out the platform on where you can use Hopsworks version 1.3 instead. Would that work for you?



Yes, I suppose that works. Should I signup at or is there a simple way for you to move the current account there? I don’t mind at all loosing my current projects.


Hi Carlos!

You will need to register there manually. Currently we don’t have a way of migrating accounts from to, to my knowledge.

Let us know if you run into any problems! :slightly_smiling_face:
