Problem installing on a Raspberry pi 4b

Hi I am very new to this but decided to build a home automation system. I decided to start with a Raspberry pi 4b as i had one not being used. I downloaded the software for it and install etcher on my Ubuntu laptop and flashed the sd card. I connected a monitor to the pi just so i could see the progress and I booted up and it started installing but it gets to the end and and there was an error i looked at the first boot log and it states the failed item was “Setting Timezone based on IP geolocation…FAILED”
I re-ran the install a couple more times same error. Any help would be appreciated.

your code goes here

Do you have the Pi connected to the internet via the ethernet port?

@Mogens_Lunde reported the same install failure earlier today, which is either a weird coincidence or means that there’s something more going on.

I’m not sure what can be done, but I’m tying these two threads together so that both posters are aware.

Hi yes I have it connected to my internet via Ethernet port (cox cable)

As a workaround you can install Buster OS, set your correct timezone then install OH via apt-get.

After that openhbian-config tool can be added with:

# install git
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git

# download and link
sudo git clone /opt/openhabian
sudo ln -s /opt/openhabian/ /usr/local/bin/openhabian-config

# execute
sudo openhabian-config
