Debian wheezy is not currently supported.

I try to install the Agent for Monitoring into my Droplet.
But it fails with a wired error:

[~]: curl -sSL | sh
Debian wheezy is not currently supported. Try Minimium versions supported are: Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 8, Centos 6, or Fedora 22.

[~]: uname -a
Linux hargov 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-2 (2016-04-08) x86_64 GNU/Linux

On the Kernal Page it says:
Your Droplet’s current kernel: Debian 8.0 x64 vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-amd64 (3.16.7-ckt25-2)

Any suggestions what i can do?!

What does cat /etc/debian_version output?

  • [~]: cat /etc/debian_version
    • This is quite strange. I created a fresh Debian 8 droplet and was not able to replicate this issue. The script determines the version of Debian by checking the /etc/debian_version

      In checking this file on my cleanly installed system it matches what you are seeing:

      root@agent-test:~# cat /etc/debian_version 

      Are you running the script as root or another user account?
