Jitsi-meet on Ubuntu 16.04 server

I cannot install Jitsi-meet on Ubuntu 16.04 server.
My assumption is because of kernel version.
uname -a returns me
Linux hostname 2.6.32-042stab142.1
Please anyone help me!!! I already spent so much time but still no results.
I successfully installed jitse-meet on other machines guided by official installation document.
here is installation log:

Still hope for some help!

uh ? I have a jitsi-meet instance running in a 18.04 LXD container under an host running ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS and kernel version is 4.4 ! I have trouble believing that Ubuntu 16.04 could use a 2.6 kernel even for the very first version. What says cat /etc/lsb-release ?

Thank you for reply.
It says:

Hi @AlBog ,

Purposely I made a test for you on how to setup jitsi-meet on Ubuntu 14.04.
Please follow this tutorial :

  1. https://www.vultr.com/docs/how-to-install-jitsi-meet-on-ubuntu-18-04-lts (Even it is written for 18.04 but I tested on 16.04 works well)
  2. If you encounter error on : “Unable to find deploy-hook command /etc/letsencrypt/renewal-hooks/deploy/0000-coturn-certbot-deploy.sh in the PATH”
    Please check this link and follow : Lets Encrypt Problem
    nano /etc/letsencrypt/renewal-hooks/deploy/0000-coturn-certbot-deploy.sh
    Add : #!/bin/bash
    ctrl+x to save and exit
    Then : chmod +x 0000-coturn-certbot-deploy.sh
  3. Continue the step where you had the error : sudo /usr/share/jitsi-meet/scripts/install-letsencrypt-cert.sh

Have fun with Jitsi !!


My bad, I didn’t mention: I install jitsi-meet on VPS.

that’s why you have a so ancient Linux kernel. 2.6 is nearly the kernel of Ubuntu 11 Maybe it would be better to try something newer.
