Bad variable name on Docker images
- 7 months 1 day ago
Some days ago I started to have some issues with all my alpine based images. I'm using runit to package some apps using nginx and python. So, recently after re-install my system with Ubuntu 16.04, (my previous version was 14.04), and install the latest docker version I was seeing a weird behaviour with my alpine based images. When I link it with any mysql databse and I get all those environmet variables injected into my alpine container I geth the following error:
Starting pre-service scritps in /etc/my_init.d *** Running: /etc/my_init.d/01_set-mirror.sh /sbin/my_init: export: line 148: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX: bad variable name
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is a GPG key

The issue is present even if I use alpine docker image version
3.5. It makes no difference.
BTW Some weeks ago the same image did work flawlessly, I'm guessing that the issue is related with docker version, but I don't know how to fix it.
UPDATE-1: I tracked down the issue to a script exporting all environment variables, it is weird because If I run the script, the export fails saying:
bad variable name but if I issue exactly the same command from the command line interface it doesn't complain. You can see the script at: http://d.pr/UgCtp
