Some tools, when I try to install them through the web, will get stuck on one tool in the "cloning" state.

In the galaxy/uwsgi.log I see this: - - [11/Sep/2018:13:44:34 +1100] "POST /galaxy/admin_toolshed/install_repositories HTTP/1.1" 500 - "" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0"

Have I made a mistake in my Galaxy installation process? I've got a long list of tools successfully installed - it's only installing new tools.

I've experienced this problem installing: rgrnastar, zerone, suite_gops_1_0.

This has been reported by another user recently. They installed through the command-line instead. Details here:

We should let the developers know about the problem. I started the conversation at Gitter here, please join in and add details/followup to complete the troubleshooting:

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team

Thanks Jen - I've already tried that (the other user is me). This was the result of searching the logs while trying to work out why suite_gops wasn't installing.

Oh sorry, I missed that! Next time let's keep the same issue in the same post until fully resolved.

The feedback today at Gitter was to make sure the tool install directory was properly configured. However, it doesn't sound like that is your problem given that other tools have installed correctly. So, reply at Gitter with your followup to determine if there is some other configuration troubleshooting that can be done -- or -- if there is Galaxy problem that hasn't been characterized yet/fixed.

We are freezing the next release very soon and reporting problems now would be important if any changes to the distribution are needed/priority. We all appreciate this type of feedback!
