I try to install Balena according to makers blog article:

Setup script causes some error in the last part of running:

After instalaton there is no /etc/init.d/balenafw or /etc/nftables/balena.nft and I understand, that Balena containers have no access to the network.

About a month ago I installed it on another PLC according to these article's guidelines and such errors did not occur and I could configure the file /etc/nftables/balena.nft.

I think the mistake lies in the documentary with us :(. We have adapted the installer for the FW2020.3 In the FW2020.3 the first settings and files are already stored in the FW and are not installed anymore. Probably you are trying to install on a 2020.0?


For install with FW2020.0: After clone the repo please checkout the following commit: 

git checkout 5abaf20

Alternatively, the PLC can be updated to FW2020.3
