Install Troubleshooting

Before posting an issue, please review our list of common issues.

These are issues we have closed because we cannot address them within the CLI due to platform or language limitations.

Upgrade from 0.1.0b10 causes 'KeyError: Azure' error

On Python 2, it's recommended to upgrade with the --ignore-installed flag: pip install --upgrade --ignore-installed azure-cli.

Alternatively, use the interactive install script.

See #1540

Error: 'Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement azure-cli'

The error message from pip usually means a very old version of pip is installed. Run pip --version to confirm. Latest pip version

Upgrade pip with $ pip install --upgrade pip or install with the --pre flag.

See #1308

'X509' object has no attribute '_x509'

If you run into an AttributeError: 'X509' object has no attribute '_x509' error, downgrade your version of the requests library from 2.12.1 to 2.11.1.

See #1360

Windows - 'FileNotFoundError' error on install

Verify that the file path quoted in the error has more than 260 characters.

If so, the installation files exceed the 260 character limit for file paths on Windows.

This can be resolved by installing the CLI in a higher directory to prevent reaching the Windows max filepath length.

See #1221

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - Known warning

You may see the following warning message during install and execution of az.

/usr/local/az/envs/default/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip/ RuntimeWarning: invalid Python installation: unable to open /usr/az/envs/default/lib/python2.7/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)
  warnings.warn("{0}".format(e), RuntimeWarning)

See #348

See also pypa/pip#1074

Errors with curl redirection

If you get an error with the curl command regarding the -L parameter or an error saying Object Moved, try using the full url instead of the url:

# If you see this:
$ curl -L | bash
  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
100   175  100   175    0     0    562      0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:--   560
bash: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `<'
'ash: line 1: `<html><head><title>Object moved</title></head><body>

# Try this instead:
$ curl | bash

Errors on install with cffi or cryptography

If you get errors on install on OS X, upgrade pip by typing:

    pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall pip

If you get errors on install on Debian or Ubuntu such as the examples below, install libssl-dev and libffi-dev by typing:

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y libssl-dev libffi-dev

Also install Python Dev for your version of Python.

Python 2:

    sudo apt-get install -y python-dev

Python 3:

    sudo apt-get install -y python3-dev

Ubuntu 15 may require build-essential also:

    sudo apt-get install -y build-essential
