I get an error after following this guide: https://computingforgeeks.com/how-to-install-ms-sql-on-ubuntu-18-04-lts/ and running the configuration command.
I've searched for a couple hours trying to find the specific issue I have but I can't seem to find anything.
I believe it's something to do with me running Ubuntu 18.10 because installing mssql inside a docker container (as per official M$ guide) does not work either.
The installation itself goes smooth but I get an error at the end of the configuration command and manually starting the mssql service just makes it get a failed status.
Output of the installation command:
