Setup Wizard crashing

This morning I wanted to setup a new frappe/erpnext-site on a freshly installed Ubuntu 16.04.3 Server.

First I choose the “Easy install” - Result: Setup wizard stopped with “There were errors”. I tried a english and a german setup.

I thought there is possible a problem with the easy setup, so I keep up with the manual setup procedure on “GitHub - frappe/bench: CLI to manage Multi-tenant deployments for Frappe apps”.

There are so many drawbacks in the instruction guide - it requires immediate revision.
(For example: MariaDB configuration/Nodejs version/NPM requirement/change of directory etc.)

So after 2 hours of work i had to realize that also the manual installation doesnt allow a flawless setup of a new company. Its stop with “There were errors”.

Hi @Christof
We have been working on making the setup wizard flawless. For now, as a workaround that annoying “There were errors”, run “bench reinstall”. That usually fixes the problem

This hint should be in the installation guide, otherwise new users will give up soon.
