Hi Noble Man,

There is no record id like "module_category_knowledge_management" in Odoo V9.

If you have copied that code from V8 version then its will not work in V9.

The 'knowledge' module depends on the 'base' module, and this error should not be there. There seems something strange happened while installation. Try to 'upgrade' the 'base' module and then install the 'knowledge' module again.
