Did somebody have the same issues? Are there any fixes?

Hi @matthias_pohl

What was the command you have used for the installation of new extensions?

./knime -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -nosplash -consolelog -r https://update.knime.com/partner/4.3,https://update.knime.com/community-contributions/trusted/4.3,https://update.knime.com/analytics-platform/4.3 -i org.knime.features.mongodb.feature.group -d /home/ubuntu/knime_server/knime_executor

Hi @matthias_pohl

Is this the full output of your command line window? Does it also save a file containing error messages somewhere (usually there is a message like "There were errors. See log file: ")? It would be great if you could check if there is more information available.

Could you also check if you are using the same user to install extensions as the user who had performed the server installation?
