Multi-user installation failed

Hi, all:

I failed to install NixOS for multi-user installation, with command
sh <(curl -L --no-daemon

got the ERRORS:

---- sudo execution ------------------------------------------------------------
I am executing:

    $ sudo /nix/store/6mjgljq8sm9bsz6k22as5ar3jw78644m-nix-2.8.1/bin/nix-store --load-db

to load data for the first time in to the Nix Database

---- oh no! --------------------------------------------------------------------

But I successfully installed Single-user installation.

Can anybody give me a hint why it is so?


  1. Nixos doesn’t need that command, it comes with nix in multi user pre installed
  2. That command is for the single user installation
  3. On what operating system are you running into the error?
