    Command line install messages:

    NX> 701 ERROR: Installation of NoMachine server is corrupted:

    NX> 701 ERROR: Missing /usr/NX/etc/keys/node.localhost.id_dsa ssh key file!

    NX> 701 ERROR: Please uninstall and install the package again.

    Tried uninstall and purge with same results. Also tried GUI install, unsuccessfully.

    Which package did you install from the website, and for 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Thank you for reply.

    64 is what I intend but tried both

    if you have 64-bit  architecture and installed the packages for 32-bit, you will get an error and vice-versa. Please check this on the machine you want to install on. You can do this by running uname -m in a terminal.

    If it shows: x86_64, you need amd64 deb which is here: https://www.nomachine.com/download/download&id=3
    Is this what you installed?

    If you have tried installing different packages, and then uninstalling without removing /usr/NX dir you may have some leftovers from the wrong 32-bit package which need clearing out. It would be a good idea to start from scratch.

    sudo dpkg --purge nomachine
    sudo rm -rf /usr/NX /etc/NX

    and install again.
