Failure to install dependencies: chef client

Hello,

 

When I downloaded a trial version of Thingworx and installed on Ubuntu 18.04, after installing the pre-requisites, and when installing Thingworx, I am getting the following error:

 

Failed to Install dependencies: chef client.

 

Is there a platform specific problem of Ubuntu not being supported currently?

 

Thanks

The free trial installer does not work on Ubuntu. It is supported on CentOS and will likely work on other Linux distributions based on Red Hat Linux:

Re: Failure to install dependencies: chef client

The given link does not mention the solution for the problem on Ubuntu. It
just says that the install worked on CentOS and asks a question of whether
Ubuntu is supported?

Is there any solution for having the installation complete successfully of
a trail version of ThingWorkx on Ubuntu 18.x version?

I have the same problem and also agree with @vasan that the solution you refer to is not a real solution. It's hard to be motivated to use this software if one has to do hacks like that and use an OS that isn't even on the list of supported OSes..
