Can't install Node Red ( + Ubuntu 18.04)

I am trying to install Node Red using on Ubuntu 18.04. I have added the repository and when I click the Install button for Node Red, nothing happens. It didn’t work under .68, so I updated to .69 and I was able to install the DuckDNS addon.

The log shows:

That’s a known issue with the hassio installer ( that’s been fixed with Re-running the hassio installer should fix it.

That did the trick. Thanks!
