Failed Installation on AWS Lightsail

    This usually indicates an issue with yum. Can you try to run "yum update" and install the oustanding packages if any and see if it completes fine? then re-run the installer.

    The cPanel & WHM installation failed. Please consult /var/log/cpanel-install.log for detai
    ls.

    You may still follow the manual installation process to complete your server setup:
    https://docs.cpanel.net/installation-guide/install/
    [ec2-user@3-106-144-175 ~]$ sudo yum update
    cPanel Plugins project                                    3.5 kB/s | 2.9 kB     00:00    
    Dependencies resolved.
    Nothing to do.
    Complete!

    You should run cPanel install as root (without sudo) so first gain root access then execute the installer.

    To install cPanel & WHM on your server, run the following command:

    cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest

    Usually when you get the "Cannot install until needed system packages are installed" error, you can force an update to the operating system itself to resolve the issue.  That would be done with "yum update" in CentOS/AlmaLinux or "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade" on Ubuntu.  If things still aren't working after that, please submit a ticket so we can take a look!
