I had succesfully installed CartoDB in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS VM and could import CSV and GeoJSON without any error. When I try to load shapefiles, the following error pops out.
Error Code : 3009
Error : SHP Normalization Error
My environment for python is Version 2.7.6 and I have latest GDAL installed which is of version 2.1.3.
I have tried to export the uploaded GeoJSON file and then try to import in CartoDB to prevent any encoding/projection issue but still no success.
