Deploy Zulip to Render Quickstart not deploying


We’re trying to deploy Zulip on Render using the Quickstart linked here: Deploy Zulip | Render · Cloud Hosting for Developers

It’s failing to build, with the webservice throwing an error. The deploy exits with status 1. Logs are copied at the end here. Thank you for any help!

Hey Todd,
I’ve raised this with our docs team - given that the Dockerfile is deploying the latest revision and that was a change over 8 months ago I suspect the example has gone a little stale - which is a problem we have with examples like this.

Our docs team will take a look at this and decide what to do here - which may be retire the example altogether.
