Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting information can be found in the docs. If you need help, you can join UBports' support channels on telegram or matrix or ask a question in the forum or on askubuntu. If you believe that the UBports Installer is not working correctly, you can also file a new issue to help us solve the problem. Use the Report a bug button directly in the installer to generate a template for a bugreport with all the important metadata automatically filled out.

Config files

By default, the Installer will always use the latest version of the installation configuration files available. Should you want to specify a custom config file, you can do that by starting the Installer with the -f ./path/to/config.yml argument. This can be used to test changes to the configuration or even to add new devices to the installer. The structure of the config files is specified here.

Logs

If the installer runs into an error, it will usually present you with the option to create a bug report. It is always a good idea to make use of that feature, because that way the developers will almost always have all the information they need to help you. If you still have to look at the log file for some reason, you can find it in ~/.cache/ubports/ubports-installer.log on linux (or ~/snap/ubports-installer/current/.cache/ubports/ubports-installer.log if you're using the snap package). On Windows, it will be located at %APPDATA%\ubports\ubports-installer.log and on macOS you can find it under $HOME/Library/Caches/ubports/ubports-installer.log.
