Apache is the proxy server for Glance in this case. The message says that
Apache doesn't get the expected response from Glance, which could mean that
Glance is not running at all. Check for other errors further up in the log.

An earlier local.conf not working anymore on a newer DevStack version has
hit me as well at times. You may have to carefully evaluate what you need in
your cloud and throw out everything else. You might also have version
mismatches - remember that enable_plugin has an optional version parameter.

Following from my earlier email, I’ve traced the problem to a mis-match of
arguments between /opt/stack/nova/nova/db/sqlalchemy/api.py and nova-manage.

If I change api.py to exclude the retry_on_request from the list of
arguments, nova-manage works.

This is obviously the wrong thing to do but at least it gets things

At least, I get further through the installation.

I am now seeing another error further down the installation:

I’m not using a proxy server so I have no idea where THIS one is coming
from.  If I run the command manually, it works.

I’m trying to install a new OpenStack Pike environment using Devstack.  The
local.conf is identical to a system built in early October (same base OS –
CentOS7, same interfaces, different IP addresses, but that is all).

The system in October installed perfectly.

This system refuses to install falling over at the very first “nova-manage”

2017-12-06 21:36:38.427 | TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword
argument 'retry_on_request'

The only difference I can see between the two systems is that the Python
libraries are different versions (oslo.db is 4.25.0 on the old system,
4.31.0 on the new one).   

I have no idea where to start looking.
