Checking Configuration has not been completed - "your system is not ready for use by Virtualmin"

OS type and version: Ubuntu Linux 20.04.3
Webmin version: 1.981
Virtualmin version: 6.17-3
Related products version: Usermin version 1.823

I installed Virtualmin through the same link (Downloading and Installing Virtualmin – Virtualmin)… the installation was done without problems…

But I get a message during Checking Configuration:

“…your system is not ready for use by Virtualmin.”

Is there a solution to this?

Look for the Supported OS page don’t know the link now, but there the LTS version is supported only i remember

OS type and version: Ubuntu Linux 20.04.3

  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and 20.04 LTS on i386 and amd64 (non-LTS releases are not supported). 20.04 LTS is recommended.


20.04.3 is the LTS :slight_smile:

If he were running “20.10” or “21.04” or “21.10” then you’d be right.

IYup sorry i only read version nr not the LTS behind it and don’t use Ubuntu myself.
So therefore don’t know about version nr’s being LTS.

@nureddin search gives more this is only one

Unfortunately, I did not find a solution.

You’re missing the procmail-wrapper package or system configuration did not complete.

Either would suggest that you’re running on an unsupported distro or architecture, or that the system is not a fresh OS installation, maybe you installed some other packages before Virtualmin, or made some configuration changes.

If you start with a freshly installed, supported, OS (and supported archtecture…i.e. not ARM), and run the installer, if every stage completes without error or warnings, then you won’t have this problem.

I would have to guess at where exactly things went wrong…so I don’t want to tell you how to just fix this one warning. It indicates several things could have gone wrong, and you’ll be back tomorrow with more problems if we just fix this one.

As far as I know, there are no known bugs installing on a freshly installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on amd64 (x86_64) architecture system. It’s possible there are new problems caused by updates to the OS we don’t know about yet, but those are rare this late in the release cycle of a distro, and since Ubuntu is popular, we probably would be hearing a lot about it.

So, my recommendation to you is to start with a freshly installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (whatever the current release is, I guess 20.04.3, is fine) system. Make sure you do not enable any third-party repos, make sure the image your provider gives you doesn’t have a bunch of stuff pre-installed (i.e. don’t install a “LAMP Stack” image or one with Webmin or whatever). Run the installer, and watch the danged installer carefully. It counts down the steps so you can see if it exits early. If it exits early, stop what you’re doing, and tell us where it stopped. You system isn’t ready and you shouldn’t proceed past an incomplete installation as though it’ll fix itself later…it will not.

I’m already using Arm-Based Compute!
Is this really the cause of the problem?
Can you explain that please?

I disabled email spam and now virtualmin works fine without email spam…

Is this considered a risk or what are the expected risks or problems?

I can explain: We do not support ARM systems.

It’ll work, minus all mail processing (spam/AV scanning, autoresponders, etc.).

Yup that was why i did post a link and quoted @Joe post about that before above here, i did found it with forum search, but true sometimes you have to read a lot of search result before the one you need is for your eyes. :wink:
