As the title suggests, new Installations of v1.8.8 are stuck at “Installing dependencies” step, on both Debian and Ubuntu. I noticed that this error was immediately introduced after the last v1.8.8 release.
Update: After rebooting the server and re-running the installation script, it successfully passed “Installing dependencies” step, so it seems it was able to install missing dependencies at the first time but was not able to communicate this and kept showing the “Installing dependencies” screen indefinitely.
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
The message was “[ * ] Installing dependencies…”
The used flags during installation were:
–apache no --spamassassin no --clamav no --port 2087 --quota yes --sieve yes --hostname *** --email *** --password ***
After inspecting the logs turns out the first install attempt (the one that got stuck) had only one required dependency that was not installed (apt-transport-https), so it proceeded to install it, and though the log shows it was installed successfully, the installation script didn’t proceed after that step and kept showing the “[ * ] Installing dependencies…” message.
The other log that belongs the successful installation (the one done after the reboot) shows that all dependencies was already installed, and hence proceeded normally.
This is the log of the first run:

By default, wget has no limit neither for connection nor dns timeouts and has 15 minutes for read timeouts so maybe you had some dns or connection issues and wget was stuck forever. If you can test it in a new installation, execute the command manually to see whether it gets stuck before trying to install Hestia.
If that is the problem, maybe a timeout should be used in wget (for example; --timeout=30)
Hi @sahsanu , I just tried a fresh new install from a different cloud platform and everything went normally, so I guess this bug is now considered vendor-specific. For now I will mark this reply as a solution. Thanks sahsanu and eris for your involvement in this topic and for all your efforts in this amazing community.
