This error alone doesn't give me much to go on unfortunately. Could you post the code for the program that you were trying to run by any chance?

Here's another code that produces a similar error:

from dumbo import *
import numpy
import json
import re
import numpy
import itertools
import math

ALL_DIGITS = re.compile('^[0-9]+$')

def mapper1(key, value):
    yield value.split('\t')

def maxreducer(key, values):
    yield key, max(values)

def reducer1(key, values):
    yield key, list(values)

def videos_mapper1(key, value_list):
    w = 1./len(value_list)
    for v in value_list:
        yield v, w

def sum_sqrt_reducer(key, values):
    yield key, math.sqrt(sum(values))

def pairs_mapper1(key, value_list):
    w = 1./len(value_list)
    value_list = sorted(value_list)
    for v1, v2 in itertools.combinations(value_list, 2):
        yield (v1, v2), w

def pair_sumreducer(key, values):
    yield key, sum(values)

def pair_to_secondary_first_mapper(pair, value):
    yield pair[0], (2, pair[1], value)

def video_to_primary_mapper(video, value):
    yield video, (1, value)

def normalize_reducer(video, values):
    dummy, w = values.next()
    for dummy, video2, e in values:
        yield video2, (2, video, e/w)

def runner(job):
    o1 = job.additer(mapper1, reducer1)
    o2 = job.additer(videos_mapper1, sum_sqrt_reducer, input=o1)
    o3 = job.additer(pairs_mapper1, pair_sumreducer, input=o1)
    o4 = job.additer(pair_to_secondary_first_mapper, input=o3)
    o5 = job.additer(video_to_primary_mapper, input=o2)
    o6 = job.additer(identitymapper, normalize_reducer, input=[o4, o5])
    o7 = job.additer(identitymapper, normalize_reducer, input=[o6, o5])

if __name__ == "__main__":

Presumably the error happens for the iteration that executes "video_to_primary_mapper"?

It looks like the "newopts['numreducetasks'] = '0'" on line 400 of "dumbo/core.py" is somehow not going through, which will indeed get you into an old code path that leads to the specified error.

Getting to the bottom of this will probably require reproducing the problem and doing some further debugging, but unfortunately I don't have the time for that right now. I don't think it would be that complicated to figure out though, so it doesn't have to be done by someone who's (already) very familiar with the Dumbo internals...
