SOLVED Installing Cloudron on Scaleway misses tzdata

  • Hi,

    The install script will fail on Scaleway / Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic as

    export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
    apt install tzdata

    fixed it for me.
    Maybe the install script could be updated to take this into account?

    thanks for reporting. The tzdata issue is fixed with but is pending a release.

    Still trying to reproduce the apt interactive issue. Which package required this for you?

  • Hi,
    Thanks for the fix.
    Regarding the export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive statement : I'm really not sure it's required, but apt-ing tzdata will prompt an interactive interface that might not be needed.

    Actually I think I found the issue, it is the sudo package:

    Setting up sudo (1.8.21p2-3ubuntu1) ...
    Configuration file '/etc/sudoers'
     ==> File on system created by you or by a script.
     ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.
       What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
        Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
        N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
          D     : show the differences between the versions
          Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
     The default action is to keep your current version.
    *** sudoers (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?

    Did you also see this or is that something else?

  • @nebulon Yes I saw this pb with sudo, (but that can be solved if you tail -f in another terminal as advised: you can type the answer in the original terminal and see the result in the second). Tzdata has a text UI, but I don't know if it will create problems in the context of the install script :

    The tzdata package will fallback to UTC which is correct already, however sudo on scaleway comes pre-installed with a custom sudoers file, which we want to keep. So the fix is pushed via and will be part of the next release.
