I'm no longer able to import MLFlow using PYPI to automated clusters

Starting yesterday afternoon, my job clusters across different workstations started throwing an error when importing from pypi the MLFlow library upon cluster initiation and startup.

I'm using an Azure Databricks automated job cluster (details below) and installing MLFlow (mlflow==1.26.1) as one of several dependent libraries via pypi. I additionally tried changing the MLFlow version, which did not change the result, and tried not specifying a version at all, which also did not work.

These jobs and clusters were working the previous day. Any troubleshoot suggestions is much appreciated.

Cluster details:

Driver: Standard_DS5_v2

Workers: Standard_DS5_v2 · 8 workers ·

7.3 LTS (includes Apache Spark 3.0.1, Scala 2.12)

Error message:

Run result unavailable: job failed with error message
 Library installation failed for library due to user error for pypi {
  package: "mlflow==1.26.1"
}
. Error messages:
Library installation attempted on the driver node of cluster 0208-140630-58jkle3z and failed. Please refer to the following error message to fix the library or contact Databricks support.

Hi Debayan - thanks for the response. It was working before, then it was down for ~24 hrs, and is now working again (nothing changed). I'm still not sure what happened.

In lower environments, we worked around the issue by pip installing the package within individual notebooks, but our production clusters were throwing errors when trying to install the library. I should consider moving to ML clusters where MLFlow is preinstalled.

Hi, What is the DBR used , based on it have you already checked the dependency packages and the compatibility to the DBR? Was it working before?
