When you install a scan node and apply the license file (sudo dotnet ScanNodeAgent.dll apply-license), the "Central directory corrupt" error is output. Also, applying the license fails.


The installation was done as root (su - root) ¨which causes problems for the Microsoft dotnet package installation.
To fix the issue, do the following:

  1. Uninstall the scan node: sudo apt remove --purge fsecure-radar-scan-node-agent
  2. Uninstall the dotnet package: dpkg -r packages-microsoft-prod
  3. Reinstall the product.
  4. Restart the system.
  5. Try the installation again but this time do the installation by using sudo instead of root (su - root).

The installation should now finish without errors. For more information on installing Radar scan nodes on Linux systems, see our online help documentation.
