What does this error mean?
Copy code
Previewing destroy of stack 'ComputeSoftware/command-processor-prod'
error: could not find plugin for provider 'urn:pulumi:command-processor-prod::command-processor::pulumi:providers:aws::default'
I have not seen that before - but it suggests that you do not have the AWS provider plugin installed. Have you run
npm install
or equivalent in this directory?
Just tried deleting
and running
npm install
and still getting the same error.
This is my `package.json`:
Copy code
  "name": "command-processor",
  "devDependencies": {
    "@types/node": "latest"
  "dependencies": {
    "@pulumi/pulumi": "0.16.0",
    "@pulumi/aws": "0.16.0",
    "@pulumi/cloud-aws": "0.16.0",
    "@pulumi/cloud": "0.16.0"
Running pulumi CLI v0.15.4.
Here's the output of `pulumi plugin ls`:
Copy code

TOTAL plugin cache size: 722 MB
So it appears to have the AWS plugin installed.
pulumi plugin rm --all
then deleted
npm install
and still getting the error.
The only plugin listed in
pulumi plugin ls
is aws 0.16.0.
Hmm - this sounds like a bug - we’ll take a look and get back to you.
Ok thanks.
Hi @full-dress-10026, trying to reproduce this myself now and haven't had much luck yet. I tried the following: Deploying a small aws application using the 0.15.4 CLI and 0.15.1 version of the AWS provider and then updated my package.json file to use the 0.16.0 versions of packages, yarn installed, and then ran update again. Didn't see what you're seeing here. Interested in what the plugins section of your checkpoint looks like (
pulumi stack export
will dump it). Also, there should be a resource in the resouces section that is named
and it would be interesting to know what the properties of that resource are.
Looking at the file under the
["deployment" "manifest" "plugins"]
JSON path, I see some directory paths that are related to CircleCI. I use this stack with both locally and with CI.
https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi/issues/2067 gives an explanation of the issue. I think the common way to hit this issue is the following: 1. Have a dependency on `"@pulumi/aws": "dev"`` and then do a deployment via CI. 2. Change the version of the
to an older one and then submit the next update via CI.
