Setting ERPNext 14 on a Fresh system is failing with error: ImportError: Module import failed for Purchase Taxes and Charges Template, the DocType you're trying to open might be deleted.<br> Error: No module named 'redis.commands'

I was not able to install dependent apps like hrms and India-complinace in the ready to use Bitnami’s VM so I installed Ubuntu server in a new VM and am installing ERPNext.

But on giving the command bench --site erp14 install-app erpnext --force I am getting following error.

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Regards,

I have not been able to diagnose the problem but after I did a reboot of the VM and after reboot I issued the following commands.

export LC_ALL=C.UTF-8
bench --site erp14 install-app erpnext --force

This worked and ERPNext was installed without any error.

Then I tried to install hrms and again I faced a lot of errors so I again reboot the VM and issued following commands.

export LC_ALL=C.UTF-8
bench --site erp14 install-app hrms

And this worked!

Similarly I followed the reboot cycle step and installed india_complainace and it worked also!

Regards,
