Kibana debian package not starting (chroot error)

Kibana version: 7.11 (current)
Installation on: ubuntu (WSL2)
Error on: start
Kibana.log: chroot: cannot change root directory to '': No such file or directory

NB: Elasticsearch is running fine.

Can you please help me on this, guys?


Hey there!

Was this a fresh install or an upgrade when this started happening? Are there any other errors in the logs or is it just the chroot error?

Also, could you maybe run ls -l on the directory where kibana is installed to verify permissions look correct?


I have this same problem, change chown to root or kibana dont help.
also reinstall.

Has anyone found a solution for this?
This started to happen with Kibana on WSL2 with version 7.11.
7.12 has same problem and Kibana does not run.
I tried fresh install, with clean WSL2, I reinstalled Kibana 7.10 which works and upgraded to 7.11 or 7.12 and Kibana stops working.
Permissions look fine for /usr/share/kibana, same as 7.10. Changed that to kibana:kibana, but issue persists. /etc/kibana permissions are correct. Any ideas or help please?
Thank you
