Ubuntu 16.04 installation

I have a laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 64bit. I’m trying to setup ERPNext for a demo to a prospective customer. (I have been an ERP Consultant for over 20 years and have decided to branch out into Open Source). I have really been battling with this!

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/frappe/bench/master/install_scripts/setup_frappe.sh <-- this works

sudo bash setup_frappe.sh --setup-production <-- gives me this: Installing for Ubuntu xenial amd64

Any assistance would be appreciated! I have tried Odoo and it installed very easily. But I don’t think it is suitable to my customer. Thanks.

Can you try it after removing http://mirror.stshosting.co.uk/mariadb/repo/10.0/ubuntu from /etc/apt/sources.list. Or try it on fresh ubuntu install so it will be simpler to trace problems.

for demo there are two easy alternatives :

  1. ERPNext Demo or ERPNext Trial
  2. Try it on VM - https://erpnext.com/download

Hey, as mentioned on the Bench Readme, the script you used only works upto 15.x, we have since deprecated it and recommend you use the new Beta script : https://github.com/frappe/bench#beta-installer

Also, I’d recommend starting from scratch (fresh server), because the old installer might have made changes that might clash.

Also, if you want to quickly get into ERPNext, you can always just download the VM : https://erpnext.com/download
