So today I was installing an VSTS agent on Ubuntu and I got the following error message ;
Failed to initialize CoreCLR, HRESULT: 0x80131500
I received this error message when trying to run the “config.sh” command ;
So how to fix this? Apparently the agent has a hard dependency towards “libicu52”. By default my system (ubuntu 16.04 LTS) had libicu55 on it. You can find the “old” package on the following location. And install it?
sudo dpkg -i libicu52_52.1-3ubuntu0.8_amd64.deb
And that did the trick!
Have fun with your Linux CI/CD pipelines now! 😀
