Issues when installing Cortex on Debian



Currently, we are installing the Cortex XDR agent on Debian servers. We have followed the steps as the documentation says. But, when the services are gonna be started it shows an error:

"sbin/service: not found". All the services show "Stopped" status. 


If I check the "/opt/traps" directory and if I run the command "dpkg -l | grep cortex-agent, all is ok. The agent is installed. The issue is when we try to execute it.


Is there something that we need to change?
