Hi and welcome @imushir

When an install fails perhaps remove the previous artifacts to start with a fresh clean system?

How do I uninstall erpnext my server?
"
Just delete your frappe-bench and bench-repo folders and remove the “frappe” user

Dear John,
I had tired many times by deleting the frappe-bench and .bench repo.
Previous frappe-bench was 945MB now it goes to 1.3 GB.
Finally ERPNext installed by trying for last 8 days.
Thanks John for helping.

Regards,
Mushirahmed

Thanks I am glad you got over that hurdle Mushirahmed.

ERPNext is truly a remarkable ambitious product that is rewarding but often frustrating.

Hence what sustains this venture are those who contribute what they can to this forum.

We are pleased you are here and are welcome to join in the learning.

cheers
