What OS are you installjng Pi-Hole on?


#3

Zorin OS. it is a system, that, based off of its system repos, is based off of ubuntu
i havve also noticed that the two things that are not installled do not have a repo for them, as apt does not recognise them.i am currently trying to install a tar.gz package of each of them
EDIT: they dont have a set install folder and im not a scripter, so i do not know how to set that, so i failed

I had the same issue today on a fresh Raspberian. It stopped after whiptail. The problem was dpkg in my case.

[edit] likely because a OS update was interrupted by a reboot to change screen resolution in GUI mode.

I tried the bash method then Method 2: Manually download the installer and run from the github page.

Method 2 had the same result so I ran apt-get update/upgrade and received a warning about dpkg have problems including a message to run sudo dpkg --configure -a

That was my problem and my solution ended up looking like this:

wget -O basic-install.sh https://install.pi-hole.net
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo ./basic-install.sh

#5

Im running my pihole on a new installed ubuntu 18.04.1
