Can't view flavour during offline installation

Hi team!

During installation on offline site, when distribution wizards starts, it can’t view downloaded and unpacked contents of xwiki-platform-distribution-flavor-xip-11.10.1.xip.

Permanent directory is default:
root@xwiki:~# cat /etc/xwiki/xwiki.properties |grep environment.permanentDirectory
environment.permanentDirectory=/var/lib/xwiki/data

I unzip file into /var/lib/xwiki/data/extension/repository/:
root@xwiki:~# ls -l /var/lib/xwiki/data/extension/repository/|head -n 5
total 264
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 11 19:56 org%2Ewebjars%2Enpm%3Abootstrap-3-typeahead
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 11 19:56 org%2Ewebjars%3Abootstrap-tour
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 11 19:56 org%2Ewebjars%3Acodemirror
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 11 19:56 org%2Exwiki%2Econtrib%2Eeditortool%3Aeditor-tool-highlighting-ui

Folder names contains symbols %2E and %3A. Is it correct?

I installed xwiki via apt, using official repo. Versions:

root@xwiki:/# dpkg -l|grep xwiki
ii xwiki-common 11.10.1
ii xwiki-mysql-common 11.10.1
ii xwiki-tomcat9-common 11.10.1
ii xwiki-tomcat9-mysql 11.10.1

using debian version 10.2

Have you restarted Tomcat after unzipping those files ?

You should also make sure the tomcat user have write right on those files (like for other files located in in /var/lib/xwiki/data) since they are also used to store the install status.

Hi Thomas! Thank you for reply.
I changed permissions as you described and restart machine - situation not changed.
Now all permissions correct:

root@xwiki:/var/lib/xwiki/data/extension/repository# ls -la|head

root@xwiki:/var/lib/xwiki/data/extension/repository#

So what happen exactly when you access the Flavor picker ?

If you get some error box on the bottom of your page you might be hitting Loading... and a refresh (F5) should workaround it (it does not automatically refresh the list alone when / is not allowed in Tomcat from what I understand).

Hi Thomas!
Thank you for reply. I did not have error massage. But I followed your suggestion - reloaded page and got list of flavors after reload!
Thank you!

Also thanks for all developers to fix debian+systemd issue (writing to permanent directory)!!!
