Ubuntu via WSL on Windows 10: Fatal error: No such file or directory #1067

Seeing this error on Ubuntu via WSL on Windows 10.

Found other threads that suggested restarting the sccache server, but no luck.
Another run will product an error on a different crate. (eg ring will fail and the next run ct-logs will fail. The underlying error is the same.

sccache: encountered fatal error
sccache: error: No such file or directory (os error 2)

Is the sccache binary you're using a Linux binary? It's unfortunate that whatever code is hitting this error isn't attaching the filename to the error message. You can try enabling debug logging to see if the logs provide more useful context.

@luser Yeah, installed into linux running on WSL. Will try debug logging.

Debug logging doesn't seem to reveal much more about the source of the error.

In this case the error occured with the bitflags crate.
Log lines containing bitflags:

sccache was installed via cargo, btw.

It does provide more information! The log shows that sccache got a cache hit, so the error must be while trying to extract the outputs from the cache entry. sccache's cache entries are zip files containing the stdout/stderr of the cached process execution, along with the set of output files from the compilation. This error is almost assuredly originating in the CacheRead::extract_objects function, which is responsible for doing that work:


Lines 152 to 179 in 50d0b1f

pub async fn extract_objects<T>(
mut self,
objects: T,
pool: &tokio::runtime::Handle,
) -> Result<()>
T: IntoIterator<Item = (String, PathBuf)> + Send + Sync + 'static,
pool.spawn_blocking(move || {
for (key, path) in objects {
let dir = match path.parent() {
Some(d) => d,
None => bail!("Output file without a parent directory!"),
// Write the cache entry to a tempfile and then atomically
// move it to its final location so that other rustc invocations
// happening in parallel don't see a partially-written file.
let mut tmp = NamedTempFile::new_in(dir)?;
let mode = self.get_object(&key, &mut tmp)?;
if let Some(mode) = mode {
set_file_mode(&path, mode)?;

There are 4 function calls there using ? to propogate errors that don't add additional context to returned errors, so any of those could result in this confusingly vague error message.

That function gets called here, FWIW:

match entry.extract_objects(outputs.clone(), &pool).await {

You can see the "Cache hit" message is logged right above that call.
