Trying to install frappe/bench under ubuntu 16.04 lxc container with two CPUs and 4GB RAM+SWAP allocated running in proxmox5.1. The output is as follows:

Certainly this is not a swap issue as it has 4GB RAM and 4GB Swap allocated:

root@frappe-bench:~# free -m
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 4096 16 3811 59 268 3811
Swap: 4096 0 4096

Definitely not a locale issue:

root@frappe-bench:~# locale

Similar to unresolved issues discussed at New installation failed and Install Error on Ubuntu 16.04 - #2 by Helios

Any input?

Seems like you already have bench installed? Are you trying to create a new bench, if yes try bench init command from home directory

also don’t run as root


Nope, it was not. It is a vanilla server, fyi. You might be confused with the hostname ‘frappe-bench’ part following ‘root’, I guess.

GitHub - frappe/bench: CLI to manage Multi-tenant deployments for Frappe apps categorically points out the ‘–user frappe’ flag deploys as a non-root user, fyi.
