AWS SAM CLI Error: Error: PythonPipBuilder:ResolveDependencies - {pyyaml==6.0(wheel)}


Hi, I am keeping running into the same error as mentioned in the title even though I have installed wheel. I have tried sam build --use-container (and there is a template.yaml in the folder), but it caused another error (Error: Docker is unreachable. Docker needs to be running to build inside a container).

It would be appreciated if there is anyone who could help me for solving this issue!

Do you have docker installed and the docker daemon running on the machine from where you are trying to use sam build --use-container command.

Take a look at

Step 3 - Install Docker mentions the following - "Docker is a prerequisite only for testing your application locally and for building deployment packages using the --use-container option. If you don't plan to use these features initially, you can skip this section or install Docker at a later time."

So if you are using the --use-container option, then you do need docker to be running on the machine.
