Docker development with tagged version of discourse

I’m trying to start a development environment with the latest tagged version of discourse. It was working until a new docker image was downloaded (when I d/boot_dev --init) and I now get errors. It seems that the docker image gets out of sync with older versions of the source.

Any idea of what I’m doing wrong or how to make this work?

Reproduction Steps

Docker development environment on Ubuntu.

$ git clone
$ cd discourse
$ git checkout v2.9.0.beta9
$ d/boot_dev --init

This fails during the “Migrating database…” phase with the following error:

Thank you. To clarify, this should work once the git core bug is resolved?

I suppose, for me it was a one time action, since then it works fine.
