8 – PHPUnit fails when logging in user

I’ve got a custom module and have the auto generated LoadTest but it is not working. This is a functional test.

  protected function setUp() {
    $this->user = $this->drupalCreateUser(('administer site configuration'));
    $this->drupalLogin($this->user); // Breaks here

  public function testLoad() {

Running this test returns :

1) DrupalTestsweekly_digestFunctionalLoadTest::testLoad
User <em class="placeholder">belwfS3e</em> successfully logged in.
Failed asserting that false is true.


When I comment out the drupalLogin call the test succeeds.

The fail is on this line

$this->assertTrue($this->drupalUserIsLoggedIn($account), new FormattableMarkup('User %name successfully logged in.', ('%name' => $account->getAccountName())));

And if you look at the error from above it’s from the TestCompatibilityTrait which had some pretty wacky deprecation errors.

Here is my phpunit env

    <!-- Set error reporting to E_ALL. -->
    <ini name="error_reporting" value="32767"/>
    <!-- Do not limit the amount of memory tests take to run. -->
    <ini name="memory_limit" value="-1"/>

    <env name="MINK_DRIVER_ARGS_WEBDRIVER" value=''/>

This is using lando.
Why would I be getting these failures? It accesses the site just fine, it seems to be checking if the user is logged in that’s causing the issue but I can’t find out why.
