Ubuntu 20.04: ghost install fails

Hello,

I’m trying to install Ghost in Ubuntu 20.04 using one of the free Tier Oracle Cloud servers.

At hardware level it has an Ampere processor, 20GB of RAM and 3 cores (OCPU).

When launching “ghost install”, following errors appear:

Could you let me know if there is any way to resolve this issue?

YOU.
ARE.
THE.
BEST.

Exactly, looks like that’s an issue of Nodejs16 with ARM. Everything went fine once I tried with Nodejs 14 :smiley:

Good thing Ghost is still supporting v14, so I can continue the migration from the 1GB RAM machine to this one.

Many thanks!!!
