@chaudhry you need to be on amazon linux - what does /cat/etc/system-release say?

VERSION="2018.03"
ID="amzn"
ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"
VERSION_ID="2018.03"
PRETTY_NAME="Amazon Linux AMI 2018.03"

I think my AMI is old. May be I need to upgrade my server to AMI 2. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

You can try the following if using the original Amazon Linux Amazon Machine Image

sudo yum-config-manager --enable epel

Thank you! I was trying to make Puppeteer work on Elastic Beanstalk (Amazon Linux 2). Your file was a good start but I had to make a few changes.

I haven't look at AL2023, I know they have changed a few things. If I have time next week, will have a look. However, if I don't have time, we'll be migrating across to AL2023 next year and will look at it then.

Try this for Amazon Linux 2023

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
sudo dnf install google-chrome-stable_current_*.rpm -y
sudo dnf install nodejs -y
npm install puppeteer
