Phase 1 of 3: Setup
[ERROR] Your OS is not currently supported by this installer.
[ERROR] You can probably run Virtualmin Professional on your system, anyway,
[ERROR] but you'll have to install it using the manual installation process.

What it say - it appears not the have a Raspbian (or ARM ) specific version.

Can you use the manual method? Might work.

EDIT: does seem to be a Raspbian version. https://www.virtualmin.com/os-support No idea how to install it though, probably best to check their website.

Virtualmin supports Raspbian Linux but the problem is that it requires manual installation. I hope someone will share virtualmin manual installation steps here.

What is wrong with reading the developers website, it is after all their software:

There seem to be detailed instructions on the Webmin documentation site, under the heading Setting up Virtualmin Manually

Unfortunately I found the manual installation instructions quiet difficult to understand.

You can install Virtualmin in Raspberry Pi with just a simple modification on to the install script.

I have my Raspberry Pi 4 installed with Raspian Buster and it is based on Debian Linux 10 using the install script.

What you need to do is

1. wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
2. sudo nano install.sh
3. Find the text "get_distro"
4. Add in os_type="debian" after get_distro

get_distro
os_type="debian"
log_debug "Operating system name: $os_real"
log_debug "Operating system version: $os_version"
log_debug "Operating system type: $os_type"
log_debug "Operating system major: $os_major_version"

What this does is, it will force the script to recognize the host as a debian operating type.

Execute the script ... It should install without any issues.

Cheers.
