Docker-compose - failed to init repo at /var/lib/docker/tmp/docker-build-git290746704: : exec: "git": executable file not found in $PATH

Im encountering the below error when exceuting docker-compose build with git repo

  1. docker build works perfectly fine. Issue occurs only in docker-compose.
  2. i have verified the $PATH pointing to git binaries
  3. i’m able to execute git cli commands

The issue only occurs with the docker-compose build. Please help

docker-compose -f ./compose/A.yml -f ./compose/B.yml up -d --build service
