I'm trying to install two packages via the startup command, as shown in the screenshot.

Screenshot 2024-06-24 075153

However, I'm getting the following error messages in the console.

When I run the commands myself in the SSH it works fine.

    I think the best solution for your problem is to deploy your application as a container: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/quickstart-custom-container?tabs=dotnet&pivots=container-linux- vscode

    This way you can customize the deployment and not try to modify the default installation of the App Service.

    I fixed it by adding #!/bin/bash to to start of the start.sh file.
