OSX docker build error Command not found: -t

This command used to work just fine a couple of days ago:

  docker buildĀ  -t dtwill/elasticsearch . | tee build.log

Now it errors with the command not found -t. The only thing that has changed in my environment is I installed docker-py via pip.

    I’m assuming docker-py has mucked something up…I was trying to execute a fig up when the build failed during an apt-get update so I tried building the image via docker instead of fig….BUT…fig has been installed for a while and the docker build -t was working while fig was installed.

    [UPDATE] So, I uninstalled docker-py and updated boot2docker so now the client is at version 1.4.1 but the build command is still erroring.

    This isn’t much of an answer but docker is working again. I uninstalled docker-py (the last thing I installed, when docker was functioning as expected) and re-installed docker with the OS X installer. My Dockerfiles are building again.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
