exact same issue for me
fresh new server with debian 12
everything up to date

same issue vor enshrouded

same issue here with valheim and ark survival ascended
ubuntu server 24.04

I can not help, but i have the same problem after upgrading, in addition to that my gui won’t start.

Having the same issue. I can still start the server manually if I enter the instance, But It will error out in the ADS manager.

Re-update AMP to the latest patch.

still erroring after successfully validating install

Can you show me the contents of the support tab for that instance?

After re updating still having issues

Your tools are outdated. Update ampinstmgr please.

I have multiple times through the GUI, and terminal, here is the support page for the manager

Also gone through GUI to update everything.

Issue still persists.


What I see is that (at least with ARK: SA) it seems to get stuck at downloading Proton GE, both when initially setting up the server instance, and just when trying to update a server instance.

This isn’t an issue with ARK: SE or with Minecraft. These are the only other 2 servers I have set up at the moment.

same on windows server core 2022 after AMP update

For those with Valheim instances, go back to the main instances screen and update the instance from there to refresh the config

A fix will be raised for ASA and Enshrouded soon

Fix now in, same instructions as above for Valheim

Now giving exit code 2
exit: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
on ark survival ascended after config refresh or fresh instance
