Fit_one_cycle throws error at `pbar = master_bar(range(epochs))`

I’m trying to train an OCR model using fastai…

At fit_one_cycle, I get the error.

The error is occurring as the value for on debugging epochs is 0.003 for some reason.
What could be the fix?

Here’s the full traceback

TypeError: 'float' object cannot be interpreted as an integer

The documentation for fit_one_cycle ( shows that the argument cycle_len must be a whole number (this is what is meant be ‘int’). This is because the cycle must take place over a whole number of epochs (a whole number of passes over the data). However you have passed in 0.03. Numbers with a decimal point are called floats. The error message – “‘float’ object cannot be interpreted as an integer” – just means that you gave the function a float when it was expecting an int. Try again with a whole number and the error will go away.
