[SOLVED] How do I solve this problem : cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects?

When upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 I had a strange failure. I have done 4 OpenERP servers and the last one gave me this error.

It occurs when trying to print anything sales or purchase related. Product labels can be printed.

This is the message it shows:

cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects
handle_pageBegin args=()

I have made a backup of my database and tried removing all fields I create myself. I also removed all changes to views I made. When googling for this problem, it only gave me python related errors.

EDIT: I also tried installing werkzeug 0.8.3 version, but that made no difference. On my other server this worked like a charm.


This is what openerp log shows.

    raise openerp.osv.osv.except_osv(description, details)

Is anybody getting anywhere with this? I can't seem to solve it as my python knowledge is not up to par. I am really getting frustrated as we can't use the openERP atm and we I don't know how to solve this. I tried numerous things already. Including database duplication, installed the database on another server. Installed and uninstalled modules and python programs/libraries and I am running out of ideas now.... Any help is welcome.

Try to upgrade repotlab and pil python module. You can test if my guess is correct by removing any image from the faulty report (including from header or footer) and then print it.

This is 100% right. I added a custom picture for our delivery terms and that one was being a thorn in my eye. Only upgrading reportlab didn't solve it. Pil module wasn't found.

Hope you can help me with this, I now disabled the logo, but I would like to get it back :)

If no pil then it should be pillow. I see some limitations of report implementation in odoo, usually because some bugs in third party module. If you hit any problem with the image, it's better to post new question.

Thanks for clearing this. It works now. I am working on the image, if I can't get it to work you will see another question ;-). Thanks for answering!
