pyspark / pyarrow problem

[ Edited ]

We're using cloudera with anaconda parcel on bda production cluster .

I tried to execute pyspark code that imports pyarrow package , then i faced with error below .

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/opt/cloudera/parcels/SPARK2-2.3.0.cloudera2-1.cdh5.13.3.p0.316101/lib/spark2/python/lib/", line 140, in require_minimum_pyarrow_version
 File "/opt/cloudera/parcels/Anaconda-3.6.5_2/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pyarrow/", line 47, in <module>
   from pyarrow.lib import cpu_count, set_cpu_count
ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "", line 51, in <module>
   @pandas_udf(schema, PandasUDFType.GROUPED_MAP)
 File "/opt/cloudera/parcels/SPARK2-2.3.0.cloudera2-1.cdh5.13.3.p0.316101/lib/spark2/python/lib/", line 45, in _create_udf

ImportError: PyArrow >= 0.8.0 must be installed; however, it was not found.

Also output of conda list is below .

[ihsany@gbbdap02 ~]$ dzdo /opt/cloudera/parcels/Anaconda/bin/conda list |grep arrow
arrow-cpp                 0.9.0            py36h1ae9da6_7    <unknown>
pyarrow                   0.9.0                    py36_1    <unknown>
[ihsany@gbbdap02 ~]$ dzdo /opt/cloudera/parcels/Anaconda/bin/conda list |grep boost
libboost                  1.65.1               habcd387_4    <unknown>

Re: pyspark / pyarrow problem

From the details which you shared, we could see that pyspark is pointing to older version( of libboost than the one expected ( {{ dzdo /opt/cloudera/parcels/Anaconda/bin/conda list |grep boost libboost 1.65.1 habcd387_4 }} It looks like that new version of PyArrow was not installed properly. So please try clean older packages and then install pyarrow again using below command {{ conda install -c conda-forge pyarrow }} Best Regards, Senthil Kumar
