HestisCP fails on new Debian-9 VPS

I have a freshly loaded OS Debian-9 64bit.
The hst-install.sh runs ok but fails to download install

Here is messages at the end…

Updating currently installed packages, please wait… W: The repository ‘https://mirror.mva-n.net/mariadb/repo/10.4/debian stretch Release’ does not have a Release
E: Failed to fetch https://mirror.mva-n.net/mariadb/repo/10.4/debian/dists/stretch/main/binary-amd64/Packages server certificate verification failed. CAfile: /etc/
ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt CRLfile: none
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

The installer is now downloading and installing all required packages.
NOTE: This process may take 10 to 15 minutes to complete, please wait…

Error: apt-get install failed

What can I do to get past this?



apt-get update && apt-get install ca-certificates

Thanks eris. I have my VPS hosts support crew looking at the issue now.
I have passed your response to them.

I had done the apt-get update but not the
apt-get install ca-certificates.

I will report back when I know more.


But my I ask why installing Debian 9 instead of 10?

It is all ready out for over 1 year?

I don’t know why Debian 9. It was available and probably used as more longer term stable.
I will see if they can switch my VPS to Debian 10.

eris suggested we go to Debian 10.

I had the VPS host setup Debian-10 and tried again to install HestiaCP.

I added the command…

apt-get install ca-certificates

before trying to install HestiaCP.

Then I downloaded and installed with NO problems.
Thanks to member eris and the team at HestiaCP.
note: This install was mainly to fix a stuff-up caused by Centos CWPro panel.
I had used HestiaCP successfully elsewhere previously.

Maybe they should remove Debian-9 from the OS candidate list.


No we still support until it is EOL how ever it is better to use always better to use the last version. Debian plans to support it until 2022 so we still need to support it. Other wise we get angry current users …

apt-get install ca-certificates

Should also fix the issue on Debian 9

yes, you can bet on that. are you already feeling my breath at your neck? :joy:

I already can imagine it :smiley:. But I think we should implement ca-certificates requirement into the debian installer aswell, gonna push a fix soon :slight_smile:.


And done…
