For those who are choosing to:
- install the Home Assistant Operating System
- on generic x86/64
- using a Ubuntu 22.04 LTS as the live OS for writing the image to the boot medium
You might run into a problem running Balena Etcher on Ubuntu. For me, the appimage would just silently fail to run. Running these two commands from the command line got me unblocked:
sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo apt-get install libfuse2
Hopefully this helps someone googling for the problem.
