please format this Preformatted text using ``` at the beginning and end of the terminal output also did you break the script by pressing CTRL + C?

Yes, had to ctl+c in the end as I didn’t want to go thru the update.

Do you have dnsmasq installed and enabled? If you do then FTL will always install the binary.

Edit: Code is at https://github.com/pi-hole/pi-hole/blob/release/v5.0/automated%20install/basic-install.sh#L2433

Shouldn’t pihole-r have done that?

Done what?

Installed and enabled the required dependency’s

It’s not a dependency. FTL includes dnsmasq so the actual dnsmasq package and binary are not needed. Having it installed will cause issues.

Ok so the pihole-r script will not check if it’s there and throw an error or ask to remove it

No, it won’t. But lets see if the OP has any response first before things get off on a tangent.
