Can't run script task on Raspberry Pi

I can’t get a “run a script” task to run on a raspberry pi. For Dev I have a Mac and it runs fine there, but for prod, I am using a raspberry pi. My hunch is that either the script isn’t transferring to the pi or something isn’t wiring-up properly so it doesn’t know what it needs to run.

The short error message is:
Could not find script file:
The remote script failed with exit code 1

The reason behind my hunch is that I think there should be something after the colon in the error message like a file name that the system is looking to run. To troubleshoot the issue, I created a new step in the process to run a batch script. Here is the entirety of the test script that it will not run:

The “Installing the package” task seems to work fine without the “run script” tasks. I also tested using “Custom Deployment Scripts” and those work just fine also (I just put some echo bash commands in those and they worked without error), but I also want to be able to run a basic bash script outside of the “Custom Deployment Scripts” feature in a separate task.

I don’t have a tentacle log because it is a raspberry pi. The OctopusServer log doesn’t have any errors in it. Here is the output from Calamari on the pi:

If anyone can help me, that would be awesome. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks for reaching out. It is strange that there isn’t a more detailed description in the error, or at least the name of the file it supposedly cannot find.
I did try this out on my end and got some errors using the same version of Calamari you are using 2018.4.6-v2018-4-0-0032
This version is quite old, so It might be worth trying it with the same version of calamari that is installed with your Octopus installation, this number can be obtained from the verbose log of another project. Look for the line Using Calamari.linux-x64 x.y.z, which will give you the Calamari version in use on your Octopus Server.

I managed to get an example working on my end using Calamari.linux-arm.4.7.7

Let me know if that makes any difference.

Kind Regards,
Tom W
