Azure App Service Fails to Start w/ Azure Container Registry Pull – Docker Container – Can not Find File – Works with Docker Hub


Problem :
Can not deploy Flask web application from Azure Container Registry even though I can deploy the same Docker image from Dockerhub and have it work. Logs indicate that is unable to be found, but this file definitely in the root directory.

Additional Details
Pulling the image from Azure Container Registry and running it works on my local machine and on the machines of others who have tested it.

I have another web application with Node.JS that when run the exact same way (Click on Container Repo Tag X -> Deploy as App Service), it works.

Azure App Service seems to be able to pull the image. My password, username, and repo name are all correct in the docs.

Image has been built and deployed to via Azure DevOps, just like how my Node.JS web application was, which works fine. I also built the image locally and uploaded it to the Azure Container Registry and it also did not work.
