[unstable 2.0.6146-1] Error during install of jicofo sip-communicator.properties: No such file or directory

I’m trying to install the latest unstable (2.0.6146-1) on Ubuntu 20.04. On a newly created AWS server, I’m just following the self-hosting guide:

apt update
apt install apt-transport-https
apt install gnupg2
apt install nginx-full
sudo apt-add-repository universe
sudo apt update

curl https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi-key.gpg.key | sudo sh -c 'gpg --dearmor > /usr/share/keyrings/jitsi-keyring.gpg'
echo 'deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/jitsi-keyring.gpg] https://download.jitsi.org unstable/' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi-unstable.list > /dev/null

# update all package sources
sudo apt update

sudo apt install jitsi-meet

I enter my FQDN, chose let’s encrypt certificate, but then the install fail, during the configuration of jicofo:

 jicofo
 jitsi-meet

Any idea ?

Installation is working with yesterday unstable:
apt install jitsi-meet=2.0.6142-1 jicofo=1.0-775-1 jitsi-videobridge2=2.1-536-g5b4158a5-1

I suspect the following commit of today moving jicofo to the new config broke the install

Maybe you want to take a look @Boris_Grozev

yes this string includes a forbidden character ‘@’
could have been something like

hocon -f $HOCON_CONFIG set "jicofo.bridge.brewery-jid" "\"JvbBrewery@internal.auth.${JVB_HOSTNAME}\""

this stuff was reviewed by @damencho
