Problem with installing DNScrypt

I'm having a whole lot of trouble installing DNScrypt on Zorin 15.3 core. I'm suspicious that the issue is with Zorin. Can somebody else try to install it and confirm/disprove?


Can you describe what method of installation you used and what your troubles are?

I'm installing it via the sudo apt install dnscrypt-proxy command but mid-installation it gets stuck and finishes the installation with this error: Job for dnscrypt-proxy.service failed because a timeout was exceeded. I can't get it to work at all. Even tried it on a fresh Zorin installation but I get the same error.

That sounds like a repo issue.
Can you remove existing files first:

sudo apt purge dnscrypt-proxy

Then add the repo, update and then install:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shevchuk/dnscrypt-proxy

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt install dnscrypt-proxy

Yes, you were right. I was not expecting it to be a repo issue! Thanks.
