Hi there @SBMedia,

It sounds like that you might be running a legacy version of Ubuntu, can you run the following command to check your exact OS release:

  • sudo cat /etc/os-release

If this is the case, you would need to consider an OS upgrade in order to be able to run the metrics agent.

Hope that this helps!

    • Hi there @SBMedia,

      In this case, all you need to do is just run the install command and once the installation goes through successfully, that message will disappear from your control panel.
