Ironwood installation issue

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to install the OpenEdx ironwood release with devstack on my machine, but somehow devstack runs ansible task and ansible fails to install.

my main concern is why the devstack installation hits the ansible script, in past, I have done ironwood installations multiple times, but I never see an ansible script while the devstack installtion.

Please let me know if I missed anything.

Installation logs:

Hi @kiran_chauhan,
Looks like the script is failing when trying to run apt update. Try running this command alone and see if it fails.
Ironwood requires Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS. Are you using exactly this version?

Let me know if it helps.

Btw, Ironwood is a quite old version and out of even community support. We suggest moving to Maple.
