Hi @sunilmaghanuru ,


Please follow the steps below:

1. The error message indicates a mismatch between Python versions in the worker and driver environments. Ensure that both environments use the same minor Python version.Check the environment variables PYSPARK_PYTHON and PYSPARK_DRIVER_PYTHON to ensure they are correctly set.

2.The error may also be caused by Java heap space limitations. Consider adjusting the driver memory configuration in your Spark session.

3.Ensure that your Spark version supports cloudFiles. Compatibility can sometimes be an issue. If you're using Spark with a build that doesn't include `cloudFiles` by default, you might need to include the appropriate package when starting your Spark session. 

4.Some data sources require specific configuration settings. Review the documentation to ensure you have configured everything correctly for `cloudFiles`.


Best Regards,
