i've installed magento 2.1.6 with sample data via composer on my local docker machine. Everything works fine but after clearing the image cache, the categories have no product images.
If i click on one of the products, the product view will load correctly.
# category_view (not show - 404 error)
# product_view (show)
The cache folder "f073062f50e48eb0f0998593e568d857" is called but not created. All other cache folders created correctly... Does anyone have the same issue or maybe a solution?
I have same problem after updating 2.1.5 to 2.1.6. (WAMP or server Debian 8.7).
Also new clean or sampledata installation not work - not show images in category.
Unable to save new product or changes, cache directory cannot be created.
Same issue for me with docker and 2.1.6.
Oddly enough, when I go in and modify the images for a product via the admin, the thumbnail cache is created, so the permissions for that process are fine. Even re-deploying static files a couple of times had no affect. Some files are shown on the category page, but most are not.
