Copy error during odk central installation on windows 10

Hello I get this error
Step 5/11 : COPY server/package.json ./*
ERROR: Service 'service' failed to build: COPY failed: no source files were specified during docker-compose up execution.

The service.dockerfile is unchanged

Hello Aurelien,

I have the same problem on Ubuntu 20.04. Did you find a solution?


Hello Aurelien,

I solved this error. I missed installing the git 'submodule' by not typing:-

git submodule update -i

before typing:-

docker-compose build

which installed the 'server' part which was missing.
