ArcGIS Server for Linux not installing

I am trying to install ArcGIS Server 10.7.1 son a Linux machine. I get no error message. I know I'm using the Linux installer and not Windows. I am using the command line to complete the installation.  It passes ALL the pre checks or requirements.  When it gets to the stage of the launcher it does not continue for me to click next.

Does anybody have any idea why this is happening?

Kind regards,

Hey Daniel,

I haven't had much experience with installing on Linux using the GUI but I've had a lot of success using the command line installer. It is reasonably simple and well documented here: Install ArcGIS Server silently—ArcGIS Server (Linux) Installation Guide | ArcGIS Enterprise 

The command you would be running would be something similar to:

~/Downloads/Setup -m console -l yes -a <fullpath to .ecp or .prvc file>

-m is the mode (Defaults to gui)

-l is to accept the license agreement

-a is the path to the license file

I'd also be curious to know what version of linux you are running?

"Setup -m console" is the interactive command line mode. The other options are for the "-m silent" mode, which does not prompt the user for any further inputs.

Hello Daniel,

Can I trouble you for information on what flavor of Linux this is being deployed to?
Also, do you know if you are installing with the GUI from the Desktop, or are you ssh'ed in with X11 forwarding?

And look forward to hearing back!
