When I click on a profile from within my stream and that person is on a mastodon instance, I have the options to remote boost from there.
I put in my handle ( and I get redirected to this page:


With this message:

You’re about to follow

If I click follow, the 500 happens. Here is the stacktrace:

  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/flask/", line 1949, in full_dispatch_request
    rv = self.dispatch_request()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/flask/", line 1935, in dispatch_request
    return self.view_functions[rule.endpoint](**req.view_args)
  File "/app/core/", line 121, in decorated_function
    return f(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/app/blueprints/", line 644, in authorize_follow
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/werkzeug/", line 772, in abort
    return _aborter(status, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/werkzeug/", line 753, in __call__
    raise self.mapping[code](*args, **kwargs)

This shows up in the container logs (i guess it’s related):
