@fatboy1607 Can you please check error message in /tmp/error , also attach a screenshot on the stuck page , it should tell you stuck at generating which part of config  

Hi ,


I am seeing below error.


expedition@Expedition:/tmp$ tail error
import apt_pkg
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'apt_pkg'

Original exception was:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/var/www/html/libs/ansible/xml-to-ansible.py", line 523, in <module>
File "/var/www/html/libs/ansible/xml-to-ansible.py", line 113, in main
for tags in d["entry"]["tag"]["entry"]:
KeyError: 'tag'


From the error log , the error is related to python3 not properly installed.
Try this:
sudo apt remove python3-apt
sudo apt install python3-apt
