Instructions to install Client on Linux won't work for me. Can anyone help?


#1

Hi all,
The page: https://www.urbackup.org/download.html
Says that I must perform this:

Install with:

TF=`mktemp` && wget "https://hndl.urbackup.org/Client/2.2.6/UrBackup%20Client%20Linux%202.2.6.sh" -O $TF && sh $TF; rm $TF

I try that, it downloads and then I get this error:

Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing UrBackup Client Installer for Linux  100%  
Sorry, you must be super user to install UrBackup Client. Try again with sudo?

I try that with the following:

sudo TF=`mktemp` && wget "https://hndl.urbackup.org/Client/2.2.6/UrBackup%20Client%20Linux%202.2.6.sh" -O $TF && sh $TF; rm $TF

and receive this error:

usage: sudo -h | -K | -k | -V
usage: sudo -v [-AknS] [-g group] [-h host] [-p prompt] [-u user]
usage: sudo -l [-AknS] [-g group] [-h host] [-p prompt] [-U user] [-u user] [command]

rm: cannot remove '/tmp/tmp.8QjylD1kPH': No such file or directory

I’m on Ubuntu 18.04 if that makes a difference? Can anyone offer any advice as to what I need to do?

Thank you

Try executing this first:

sudo -i

You will get a privileged shell, from where you can use the line in the download instruction.

Same here. I manually split the command out. Run:
wget "https://hndl.urbackup.org/Client/2.2.6/UrBackup%20Client%20Linux%202.2.6.sh"
Then
sudo sh ./"Client Linux 2.2.6.sh"
