Installer fails, needs netplan on ubuntu 18.04


I am totally newbie and trying to install Hestia with following installer script:

bash -a yes -w yes -t yes -c no -x yes -b yes -i yes -m yes -l fi \ -s mycompany.tld [email protected] - MyPassword! -a yes -k yes -o yes

I get following error:

(*) Installing ntpdate…
!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

WARNING: Your network configuration may not be set up correctly.

You may have a network configuration file that was created using

It is strongly recommended to migrate to netplan, which is now the
default network configuration system in newer releases of Ubuntu.

While you can leave your configuration as-is, please note that you
will not be able to use additional IPs properly.

If you wish to continue and force the installation,
run this script with -f option:
Example: bash --force

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello viperzero

Firstly your installer command looks incomplete, try this:

bash -a yes -t yes -c no -x yes -b yes -i yes -m yes -l fi -s mycompany.tld -e [email protected] -p “MyPassword!” -k yes -o yes

Secondly, did you remove netplan from ubuntu? if you did, also remove /etc/netplan folder so that hestia would know which network config to use.

Hi, Lupu
thank you I did not disable netplan but seems that the default vps image don’t use netplan. I used the renaming netplan folder and corrected errors and hestia installed fine. Thank you.
