I have encountered the same issue and followed the instructions below from the support team:

  1. If you do not have bash as a shell you’d need to run the script using whatever shell you have installed. You can download the script with:

    curl -sSL -o /tmp/
  2. Run the installation:

    sudo bash /tmp/

Thanks cheey2003!

This worked for me.

They should add this to the official page for server ServerPilotNoobs like me : )

Thank you so much! That worked for me as well. Spent too long trying to figure out a workaround before this (to no avail).

thanks! nice work for me :)

I have too issue on step 2.
I get: E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Any suggestion please?

Thanks, I’m also stuck at step 2.

I get this: E: Unable to locate package do-agent
and dpkg: error processing package libroken18-heimdal:amd64 (--configure):
package libroken18-heimdal:amd64 is not ready for configuration
cannot configure (current status 'half-installed')
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Ideas? Thanks!

This fixed it for me as well – thanks!
