Install Fails on Debian 8 VPS (sudo command not found)

So the FAQ says EE will install on Debian 7 and 8.

I do a fresh install of Debian 8 on Vultr, do an apt update, and apt upgrade to get the box up to date. I did a reboot of the server and then tried to do the install command displayed on the homepage of EE.

root@vultr:~# wget -qO ee && sudo bash ee
-bash: sudo: command not found

I can get it installed just fine on Ubuntu, but I read that Debian is more secure so I’d rather go with that here.

apt install sudo

Thanks, I wonder why the installer doesn’t do this automatically

Because EE assumes you already have the necessities installed. I’m using Alpine Linux as my server OS to run Docker and there’s barely things installed just to boot it up. No bash, no sudo, no curl, etc. I only install what I need.
