docker-compose version returned exit code 1

Action failed: docker-compose version


Fixed this with:

        - sudo pip install docker-compose
        - sudo pip install --upgrade six # fix error with docker-compose


Thanks. That’s saved me a lot of searching/hacking.

I sort of feel that the Docker Compose install is a bit hacky (and the versions are old). Is there any chance this is something that could be looked at improving please @CircleCI-Employees?


+1 for a default install of an up-to-date version of docker-compose.
