Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

I am seriously in trouble here.  I cannot for the life of me figure out the source of these IP errors.  Can anyone please provide me some things to look for regarding these errors:

[IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of IP CORE failed.

[IP_Flow 19-193] Failed to save BOM file.

I get these errors regarding multiple IPs that I had packaged that contain IP cores like BRAM controller and BRAM.  

I have tried deleting the .cache folder.  Deleting the offending files in the ../project.srcs/sources_1/bd/system/ip, reset the BD core's output products and regenerating them to no avail. 

I have even tried recreating the IP that is instantiated into my custom IP cores... to no avail.

I have tried restarting Vivado.  Restarting my machine.  I have tried .ooc vs. global for the Xilinx IPs instantiated... no success.

I am using Vivado 2018.2 on a Linux Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS.   Oddly, my design did not have this problem about 3-4 weeks ago, but not that I have this issue, it refuses to be resolved.  What's even more disturbing, is that I have managed a few times to somehow generate a .bit file yet it seems random!  

It seems to me that the Vivado tool itself is corrupted in some way, so I am considering reinstalling it.  

This has literally cost me weeks of lost productivity and is absolutely driving me mad.  PLEASE, can anyone help with this issue?  I have searched the forums and internet exhaustively and found little to no information on this problem.

Thank you!

Re: Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

I don't know how the link you posted has anything to do with my issue as the IP cores I am using are included with my Xilinx license.  Recall also, that sometimes I can run successfully.  I don't see how my issue could be related to licensing?

An example, I somehow ran a successful build yesterday after running the tcl command "reset_project" and this worked!  Yet now this morning same error AGAIN:  [IP_Flow 19-993] Could not find IP file for IP 'div_32div25', which is a Xilinx Divider IP.  Note, I have seen this error with block rams and controllers too.

Regards,
Chris

Hi @cleigeber ,

Can you provide the vivado.log which will show all the critical warnings errors to evaluate?

Re: Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

Just finished a build.  The problem is that it happens then I am fighting it for several days.  Lately, running the tcl clean_project, reset BD output products, regenerate BD output products, and then running implementation seems to help.  Without doing these steps, I believe the errors still occur.  I will check once I have this next build completed- I will try rerunning it with no changes made to the source files and see what happens.

Right now, I cannot give you the requested log as it was cleared and is currently running now.

Thank you for the responses!

Regards

Re: Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

The other oddity is that one of my IP cores constantly results in "IP Catalog is out-of-date" without any underlying changes to the source files.  No matter how many times I select, "Refresh IP Catalog" followed by upgrading the IP in the IP Status, once a build is kicked off it flags for needing updated again.  It is an endless loop it seems...

Thanks

I do not see a vivado.log file.  There was an old one, but none corresponding to my current builds and tools.  I do see log files in the synthesis and implementation folders.

Re: Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

Short status as I continue to troubleshoot this issue.  It appears this IP catalog out-of-date issue may be the culprit because:

1.  When I run reset_project and then run the build it completes fine.

2.  When I run "Refresh IP Catalog" and then upgrade IP, the build fails synthesis almost immediately.  Note also that the "IP Catalog is out-of-date" comes immediately back as well.

I am thinking that I must rebuild a completely new IP for that one module and see if it clears up this issue.  Something is corrupted or invalid in the IP catalog or something.  

Regards,

Chris

Re: Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

Are you sure that Vivado 2018.2 even produces a vivado.log file?  I have searched my project folder, there is no vivado.log file.

Re: Vivado Error [IP_Flow 19-98] Generation of the IP CORE failed and [IP_Flow 19-194] Failed to save BOM file

Hi @cleigeber ,

Can you rebuild a new project from scratch and try to add an Xilinx IP and check? If it errors out can you post all the critical warnings and errors which tool shows ?

If it still errors out then have a look into this thread - https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Synthesis/Vivado-2018-3-fails-OOC-synthesis-of-Memory-Block-Generator-8-4/m-p/951010#M30373

It may help you out.
