Fresh installation of 2.5 failed

I installed by copying the image onto a 16 GB SDCard
First failure in Boot is after
“OK Started Cleanup of Temporary Directories”
Following line: “FAILED (pip)”

Next crash is in "Script ‘/boot/first_boot.bash’ failed’’

systemctl status is rcommended and shows this:
● rc-local.service - /etc/rc.local Compatibility
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service; enabled-runtime; vendor preset: enabled)
Drop-In: /lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service.d

Finally ends without a Web-Interface running.

After waiting I did a reboot. Seems like the same errors show up again.

Any good ideas, what I could do or where to find more information about the pip-Failure?

BTW: pip exists and shows these packages:
openhabian@openhab:~ $ pip list

Any ideas out there?

Where did you download the image from and what are you use to flash image to SD with? Also is your internet connection good and what are you running this on a Raspberry Pi?

Downloaded Image 2.5 from (on Dec. 20th)
Copied using current version of etcher
Internet was probably good, since I accessed raspberry through SSH and saw ping connects to other systems on subnet 192.168.1.*
Raspberry is 3B plus 980 MB according to “top”

Rebooted aganin and this time it worked, I can access http://openhab:8080.
The beforementioned Booterrors did not occur again and booting needed more time than before also.

Thanks anyway
