Failed to Deploy OVF package: The task was canceled by a user

Step 1

Open the ovf file in notepad

Step 2

Remove the CD-ROM item lines from the ovf file. For some reason, the CD-ROM directives are the ones causing the issue.
You can always add a new CD-ROM after the machine is created.
I do not quite have time to find out the real problem but when i do, i will go back and edit this post.

<Item ovf:required="false">
 <rasd:AddressOnParent>0</rasd:AddressOnParent>
 <rasd:AutomaticAllocation>false</rasd:AutomaticAllocation>
 <rasd:ElementName>CD-ROM 1</rasd:ElementName>
 <rasd:InstanceID>9</rasd:InstanceID>
 <rasd:Parent>4</rasd:Parent>
 <rasd:ResourceSubType>vmware.cdrom.iso</rasd:ResourceSubType>
 <rasd:ResourceType>15</rasd:ResourceType>
 <vmw:Config ovf:required="false" vmw:key="connectable.allowGuestControl" vmw:value="true" />
 </Item>

Step 3

Also remove the .mf file. This file is used for integrity check.

Step 4

Now you should be able to deploy your OVF file.

How to Install Drupal with Drupal Composer

Step 1

Make sure that you have composer installed and upgrade it if you have to.
Something like that will do it on a Ubuntu platform

sudo apt-get install composer

Step 2

run the following command:

composer global require drupal/console:@stable

Step 3

Create your Drupal Folder

mkdir new_foler
cd new_folder

Step 4

composer create-project \
drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev new_foler \
--prefer-dist \
--no-progress \
--no-interaction

[ERROR] Command “site:install”, is not a valid command name.

If you are getting this error

 [ERROR] Command "site:install", is not a valid command name.

after installing drupal console, it it because you are running the command outside a drupal installation folder. The confusion is the fact that most of us expect a “site:install” to go out and retrieve the drupal files for us but the command is not doing that.

The site:install allows us to install drupal from the command line. 
It DOES NOT retrieve Drupal files for you. 

It took me a while to figure this out.
