I'm attempting to finish the setup for plutus pioneers cohort3 on wsl2 (Windows 10) with Ubunutu 20.04

Nix version: 2.5.1

I cloned the plutus-apps repo (and previously tried the plutus repo before instructions to change to plutus-apps)

I have followed several different sets of instructions, reinstalled nix, tried removing and recloning the repo, and various other potential fixes, but always get to the same error:

/plutus-apps$ nix-build -A plutus-playground.server --show-trace
error: reading from file: Is a directory

did you

  1. Go to the latest commit of the repository, before doing nix-build:

git checkout 41149926c108c71831cfe8d244c83b0ee4bf5c8a

this gives you a message that you are at HEAD ****f5c8a

Going to this commit helped me, I had build errors too

  • Hey, yeah I was at that commit. I just started over with a fresh VM and after getting it working, did some minor additional setup, and it broke again in the same way. I have no idea why my custom setup would be impacting the repo like this, but that's the only thing that makes sense Jan 14, 2022 at 6:29
  • No your should not be the issue. I have the same setup: wsl2+ Ubuntu and it runs great
