Can't create or write into the apps-external directory

Problem
I was trying to install owncloud on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, I followed the instructions online and everything was going smoothly. In the finally step I found this Problem


it says that Can’t create or write into the apps-external directory
I tried to fix this problem by
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data apps-external
but it says no such file or directory.

Really appreciate if anyone could solve this problem:)

Hello,

indeed, to sum up you can create the directory by yourself and set the permissions correctly (even if not used, apps-external requires correct permissions for the installation process to end).
FYI, I created a bug report about it and the ownCloud team is working on it.
Cheers.
