New Virtualmin Install woes on Ubuntu 18.04

I have done over 20 Virtualmin installs on Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04 - without any problem.

However, NOW I cannot install on Xenial or Bionic without a LOT of fiddling.

ClamAV, Procmail and Postfix now all need manual edits. I guess updates in 3rd party apps have screwed it up. It would appear that Postfix does not get alias adding and it cascades from there.

Is this an installer that needs updating or just me?

I just setup a server with ispconfig... perfect. Buntu 18.4

10 years of this crap.

I just tried it on another kvm server from a different supplier


No interface named addresses found"

[2019-10-01 04:04:54 CEST] [WARNING] The following errors occurred during installation: [[Nothing here at all ]]

[2019-10-01 04:04:54 CEST] [WARNING] The last few lines of the log file were: [[Nothing here at all ]]

What I do not understand is why the same install failures (and the same fixes) go back 10 years, as Welshman implied. If a couple of lines of address mapping have needed adding (sometimes), since 2012, why not a simple check and if missing, pop them in like many have done manually?

Add these to /etc/postfix/

mailbox_command = /usr/bin/procmail-wrapper -o -a $DOMAIN -d $LOGNAME

virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual

It also tries and fails to set php to fpm, although it says it succeeded.
