Description of my issue

After doing a clean install of yunohost, doing the post-install stuff, setting up sub-domains & users and then starting to download my applications, Nextcloud installed fine and works like I expect it to however GitLab just spat out an error well before even attempting to install itself.

I’m not exactly sure as to what happened but I did grab the pastebin link, shown as here → https://paste.yunohost.org/raw/puxaviwako

Didn’t particularly want to just dump the entire crash.log file here, so the link has it all. Hopefully I can get some answers as to what on earth even happened >_>

Hi @lapidary.master welcome to the yunohost community.

Indeed your log doesn’t seem to show explicit errors. It might be the adding of a swapfile dedicated to gitlab that might be failing, but not entirelly sure how or why. Maybe you could post your error at the github project where it might get some attention from the maintainers GitHub - YunoHost-Apps/gitlab_ynh: GitLab package for YunoHost

Hoe much memory do you have available on your server ?

Maybe reading the following issue might give you some hints Install script error · Issue #115 · YunoHost-Apps/gitlab_ynh · GitHub ?

swapon: /swap_gitlab: swapon failed: Invalid argument

I’ve seen this happened on some “exotic” filesystem (btrfs, maybe zfs too). (The error message is pretty catastrophic in that it doesn’t hint at all at why this happens, it just sound like a syntax issue …)

Can you share the output of lsblk -f

NAME   FSTYPE LABEL   UUID                                 FSAVAIL FSUSE% MOUNTPOINT
└─sda1 btrfs          44359d31-bb89-4b70-95fc-aea9a5ec7500   99.2G    11% /
└─sdb1 btrfs  WD_18TB 279649cb-977b-405b-abb0-f2229d199386    8.5T    48% /mnt

So basically, judging by what that issue says, I would need to repartition my primary drive to create a swap partition?

Just repartitioned the HDD and it’s fine now, albeit a touch slow but in all fairness I wasn’t expecting much from the system.
