Problem when trying to install on Ubuntu Server with wget package download

(Felix Burs) #1

Hey Guys,
i want to use graylog as Syslog Server on my LibreNMS System. I tried to install Graylog for hours now and i don’t get it running.

My Server is an Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and i followed the Dokumentation from with apt. Everything is fine until the beginning of the Graylog installation. The very first command wget let my server freeze when its connecting to the graylog aws servers.

I have no idea what is wrong with this server. Everything else works fine except of this access.

Some ideas how to fix this?

Hello Felix,

I just tried it and it worked for me.

Maybe a bit more information about how your network is setup. I have installed it both in ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 LTS and it worked. Could you have a connectivity issue?

Also install tcpdump and use the -w option to write a pcap file, then open in wireshark might also help.

If you post some more information, people here may be able to help.

Hi Jake,
thanks for you reply. The network setup is pretty easy, only one firewall between my server and the internet access. I just add a rule that every traffic from my server to the internet is allowed, just to be sure that nothing is blocked. There is no proxy or something else.

Then I started a packet-capture on my firewall, for the first test this was the easiest way for sniffing, and i got the same error as before. Then i noticed a typo in my ip-address filter. But theb some magic happend and my second try works completely normal. I got the .deb package. Please don’t ask why!
I try it a few times more: 2 times freeze, 1 working access, than again freeze and last time was ok. Something is strange but i habe no idea why this is happening.

I would like to say, that everything is fine now but i got the next problem:
i did dpkg -i graylog-2.5-repository_latest.deb for installing the package but with apt-get install graylog-server (with apt-get update first) i only get: Package not found

did you refresh the cache (apt-get update) after you have added the repository?
