Error trying upgrading to palm


I’m trying to update Tutor to PALM, but in my on my way to get up I have an error in the lms and cms.
I update the openedx tutor from version 15.1.0 to 15.2.0 and I got this error:


I trying to skip the error, and i got it with updating from 15.1.0 to 15.3.0, but when I go to 15.3.6 I got the error again. I tried a lot of times skipping different versions and in the end, it always fails.

This is what appears in the log:

I have also noticed that when I have this error, in the execution of the “local launch tutor” this warning appears me a lot of times:

Finally, i found it. Indeed the problem seemed to come from ‘video_xblock’.

I had to remove it from requirements ("$(tutor config printroot)/env/build/openedx/requirements/private.txt) and do a tutor images build openedx.

That fixed my errors.
