Kibana failing to install on centos6 or upgrading to kibana-7.11.1-1.x86_64

While I try to install on centos 7 is fine but on centos 6 I get all of these errors

`

when I start I get errors: as

chroot: cannot change root directory to : No such file or directory
chroot: cannot change root directory to : No such file or directory

Any Suggestion How to fix this issue.

Hi,

According to the docs Kibana 7.x requires CentOS 7: Elastic Support Matrix | Elasticsearch

You can try upgrading the libraries manually but there are no guarantees that this will work.

Best regards

I wonder how 7.10 was working just fine though.

There is a difference between working and supported but I guess the root cause is the change from Node.js 12 to 14: Upgrade Node.js to version 14 by watson · Pull Request #83425 · elastic/kibana · GitHub
