Hoping someone here can shed some light on an issue I’ve been having trying to install Virtualmin on a new VPS (DigitalOcean 512MB/Ubuntu 14.04, though it happens identically on 16.04 and a 1GB VPS). I’ve had a scout through the forums, and I can’t see anyone else having the same issue.
Using install.sh (freshly wget’d each time), it always fails at some point during the installation of virtualmin-base, throwing errors as below.
I’m at my wit’s end, as I’m getting the same failures regardless of Ubuntu version or VPS size. I’ve tried reimaging the VPS, and deleting it and creating a brand new one, all with the same result! I’ve had Virtualmin working previously on a 14.04 512MB DigitalOcean VPS, so I’m a bit confused about what’s changed. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
Full logs here, if its any help!
