Oh dear...... thats a pity

Thought I would install your scripts on a spare unit , just for old sakes… this error:

I’ve seen a similar error mentioned in other Issues (recent: 530, 529), but many, and their corrections, seem to be dated to around v3.6~ and/or strictly address this occurring with Dump1090-mutability

Even when altered with current version numbers, the listed 'workaround’s for this do not solve the issue-- at least for -fa
NOT an expert in this level of scripting/installs, but I’m thinking the failure likely has to with Issue# 531, where Mutability states:

dump1090-mutability is no longer maintained; please don’t use it for new installs. For new installs and ongoing development, try dump1090-fa

and also lists a possible workaround to use outdated files in this script- a change I didn’t try because my target has always been FA. It seems everything is being passed over to, or managed by, FlightAware now.

I could never get the script to execute past dump1090, so I installed PiAware and Dump1090-fa IAW FlightAware’s Instructions, then ran the adsb-receiver script. It recognized the installs, asked if I wanted to update (downgrade) dump1090-fa, [NO], and continued on successfully with everything else.
“Success” - but not sure dump978 is being routed correctly yet - FA also has a dump978
