Solution #2:

The problem is this line:

File "", line 33, in create_anonymous_user
User.objects.get(**lookup) is calling User before it is defined.

Why is it called before it is defined?
…well, it is called by makemigrations to find out if there are changes in the db to define them (the changes that are found)

…so this is a “chicken and egg” problem.

I have the same error with a similar problem but the offending code was my own code (not a library like guardian)

My code was like this:

CHAT_BOT_USER, created = User.objects.get_or_create(username="rosty", email=settings.EMAIL_HOST_USER)

The offending part is the User being used before the auth_user table is created

I solved by only executing the code when the table is present. This happens when there is no OperationError. And you can know it with a try/except like this:

from django.db import OperationalError

    CHAT_BOT_USER, created = User.objects.get_or_create(username='rosty', email=settings.EMAIL_HOST_USER)

except OperationalError:
    CHAT_BOT_USER = None

if created:

This way makemigrations runs the except code and runserver runs the try code.

Note the created boolean, you may use any other way to avoid makemigration run code that depends on the User.objects.... results

Solution #3:

I was get same error and to fix the same, I checked if the mentioned table in error is present in connected DB or not. It was not. Applied migration again and it worked.

python migrate

python makemigrations

Solution #4:

  python migrate --run-syncdb  

This command will look into which tables were not created and will create all the needed tables.

Solution #5:

RUN: python3 migrate

Solution #6:

I have came across same error while working with chatrooms.
I resolved using deleting the db.sqlite3 file and deleting the file in the migrations folder of the app and then i executed the following statements:-

python makemigrations
python migrate

then i was able to create a superuser using

python createsuperuser

Thats it error resolved!
