Getting error "System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate." while installing openstack/snap service

zw flag
prashant@BGRGP93:~$ microstack
microstack: command not found

Try to install with below commands

prashant@BGRGP93:~$ sudo snap install microstack --beta --devmode
[sudo] password for prashant:
error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/microstack: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory

checked online for how to fix the above error... they suggested to try below steps... but I get error while starting snapd.service

prashant@BGRGP93:~$ sudo systemctl unmask snapd.service
prashant@BGRGP93:~$ sudo systemctl enable snapd.service
prashant@BGRGP93:~$ sudo systemctl start snapd.service
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.
Failed to connect to bus: Host is down

version of my system

prashant@BGRGP93:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release

I get this error lot of times while installing openstack... I am using wsl2 on windows 10 ...

The same snap install works on gcp instance correctly with ubuntu 16.04

It's telling you that build of Openstack is not designed to be compatible with WSL. Too many Linux services don't exist in a WSL system. Try a different approach (like a VM).

`systemctl` is not compatible with WSL2. use `service` instead. Read the detailed answer here -

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
