Problem while installing lilac.2 release

Dear All,

I am trying to install the OpenEDX native Lilac.2 release on an AWS server and I am getting the following error when installing.

I have tried to open port 9418 (as also stated in this other forum thread: Juniper install fail), but it didn’t work.

I also tried to reinstall after 30 minutes or 1 hour later as another user suggested, again no luck.

I have also tried to use https:// instead of git:// (using this command: git config --global url.“https://”.insteadOf git://), but it didn’t work either.

I would like your assistance in this, since I don’t know if this is a firewall issue (but I suppose in this case the other packages before the ‘insights/edx_analytics_dashboard’ would not install either) or a github issue (since in the ‘package.json’ file, the ‘edx-ui-toolkit’ dependency has the value “git://”, which probably cause the issue - since it is ‘git://’ and not ‘https://’ and I am writing the wrong command for git config).

It could also be the case that this repository doesn’t exist anymore or has moved to other repository, but in this case I don’t know what my options are.

Does anyone else face the same problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,


Hello @kstefan did you find any solution to this error. I am also getting this error.

Hello @kstefan and @Natnael any progress related this issue ? I am stuck with it too !

Dear @Natnael and @harout7,

unfortunately it seems there is no working solution for this.

You can check this post here: Problem installing open-release/lilac.3 - #11 by kstefan

I have no other idea on what to do with this release, let me know if you figure anything out.

Best Regards,

Thanks @kstefan and @harout7 This issue is also comes when installing previous releases like Koa. I did not find any solution for it yet. I am thinking of trying with tutor.
