Solved Installation failed on 20.04 Server
Trying to install Cloudron on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 server before migrating my existing Cloudron over.
Unfortunately, Cloudron failed to install.
Installing software-properties-common => Updating apt and installing script dependencies => Checking version => Downloading version 6.0.1 ... => Installing base dependencies and downloading docker images (this takes some time) ... => Installing version 6.0.1 (this takes some time) ... Failed to install cloudron. See /var/log/cloudron-setup.log for details
The cloudron-setup.log shows the following:
==> Ensuring directories ==> Configuring journald setfacl: /var/log/journal/*/system.journal: No such file or directory

@thpuffin which VPS provider are you installing this on?
Is it an official Ubuntu image? If not, try that.
to get passed this error, just create the file/directory it's missing, and try again.
@robi I'm installing this on Nexus Bytes' vDedi (Singapore location) and using their official Ubuntu 20.04 image.
I created the file using
touch /var/log/journal/*/system.journaland ran
./cloudron-setupagain and it's all good.
Thanks for the quick fix, and Merry Christmas.
Would be good to better understand that issue so we can fix it without manual intervention. Is there an option for you to create a new small instance at that VPS provider and see if the issue is reproducible?
@nebulon Probably not anytime soon. Nexus Bytes' minimum billing period is monthly, and I usually wait to see if they offer discounts before getting one.
