Unable to install a custom app

I am trying to install a custom app that was built by another team into my bench using the bench command to install-app

However installation fails giving the following error: (any help is appreciate to get this installed)

This may help Frappe error when running commands

Now it’s a different problem -
bench install-app [appname]
gives the error:
Could not fin app “appname”

I pulled the app successfully using bench get-app

Any points on how I can install the custom apps?

Try this:

frappe@ubuntu1804lts:~/frappe-bench$ bench list-apps

frappe@ubuntu1804lts:~/frappe-bench$ bench install-app --help
Usage: bench  install-app [OPTIONS] [APPS]...

  Install a new app to site, supports multiple apps

  --help  Show this message and exit.
frappe@ubuntu1804lts:~/frappe-bench$ ls -al apps/
total 16
drwxrwxr-x  4 frappe frappe 4096 Feb  5 19:37 .
drwxrwxr-x  7 frappe frappe 4096 Feb  4 03:45 ..
drwxrwxr-x  9 frappe frappe 4096 Apr  1 13:33 erpnext
drwxrwxr-x 12 frappe frappe 4096 Apr  1 13:28 frappe

No luck still: getting the same error.

To search the local file system do this Where do I go to setup Backups in new v8 - #19 by clarkej

You switch to stable version of ERPNext, install the app and then upgrade to the v13. I’ve recently had lots of issues with some custom scripts on v13 which work just fine on v12.

Also, when u want to install apps, you should set the site you want the app installed to. E.g, bench —site mysite —install-app etc…
