Hi, I am currently trying to reproduce the technical blog on using Tao performing transfer learning using tao-toolkit (

However, I am currently facing an issue while following the handdetect_training jupyter notebook that was provided in

When trying to convert the Egohands dataset from KITTI format to TfRecords using the command:
!tao detectnet_v2 dataset_convert ....

I received the following error:

How do I overcome this error?

See TAO Toolkit Launcher — TAO Toolkit 3.22.05 documentation, usually when you run tao launcher for the first time, it will pull the required TAO container.

Can you run follow command in terminal instead of notebook to double check?
$ tao detectnet_v2

When running tao detectnet_v2 in terminal, the same error occurred.

I am not sure why the docker image cannot be found

Can you run below to check if docker is available? From the log, the docker is pulled completely.
$ docker images

This is weird, the docker image is not present.

Can you try another way?
$ docker pull

It seems that the issue was caused due to having insufficient space on my drive. I will try to free up more space and work this out again. Thank you for the help and sorry for the inconvenience.
