Have webmin running successfully on a couple of machines, R-pi running debian and a Laptop running Ubuntu.
Having problems installing webmin onto a Raspberry Pi runnung Ubuntu Mate; it just hangs at unpacking webmin.
Tried using gdebi from GUI, tried apt-get install and dpkg, all hang at the same place.
Now apt-get upgrade says I must install webmin to correct problems but it will not install, I cannot remove it as it says I must first reinstall it.
It is now preventing me from installing other items as the update tells me I must reinstall to correct problems.
Any clues folks would be greatly appreciated, either to install or remove the part installation.
apt-get and dpkg -i both do not work.
I have sueccessfully installed this awesome piece of software in the past but I am now unable to do so.
I can confirm that this is happening on Ubuntu Server 14.04.4 x64 and Ubuntu Server 15.04 x64.
The install is taking place in a VM, Oracle VBox. Disk activity is rampent although nothing appears to be happening.
I just let it run for more than an hour and it completed successfully. I am guessing that the system was going slow.
The VM has 4GB of RAM and 100% execution cap with 6 cores...
I do not see why slow processing might be the cause.
The system itself has 32GB of RAM.
I am also getting the same problem on a dedicated server with nothing else running. I will just have to hope that after an hour it completes the install
Just keep running dpkg. Yes it takes forever and I've no idea why. It never used to do and I've used webmin for years, but after a bit of patience it sees to have installed correctly. If I run into further problems I'll post back here.
Could it have anything to do with RAID rebuilding?
