    Hello,
    I installed Debian 11 on Workstation Pro 16 and encountered the following error during ISPconfig 3 installation. I couldn't find much on the internet for a solution to this. Can you help with this?

    Code:

    Try running the failing command and see what the error is:
    Code:
    echo "dash dash/sh boolean false" | debconf-set-selections && DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive dpkg-reconfigure dash

    What @Jesse Norell wrote. In addition:
    So debian is installed on a WMWare virtual host? How was Debian installed?
    Did you pay attention to the ISPConfig auto installer preconditions:

    I was getting the error yesterday, but today it installed without any problem. There are currently no issues. Thank you for your interest.

    Why are you so surprised by this?
    I created a new virtual machine on Workstation Pro and installed Debian 11. Then I installed the ISPconfig software.
    What is unusual about it?

    I am not surprised.
    I do not know. Why do you bring up this unusual aspect? I run all my ISPConfig setups on virtual host. Some users on this forum have reported problems on cloud servers of some providers, where the OS is not a stock version but modified by the provider maybe leaving some parts out and causing problems when ISPConfig is installed. So it is useful to know on what kind of system ISPConfig is trying to install itself.

    That's why the guide for the auto-installer tells you that you have to use "su -":

    Just follow the installation instructions and do not leave steps out to prevent your installations fail.
