For details, check logs in /var/log/azure/Microsoft.EnterpriseCloud.Monitoring.OmsAgentForLinux/extension.log [stderr] Python 2.7.17 ctypes on this system, installation cannot continue. Please install the ctypes package (python-ctypes)or upgrade Python to a newer version of python that comes with the ctypes module. You can check if the ctypes module is installed by starting python and running the command: 'import ctypes'. You can run this shell bundle with --force; in this case, we will install omsagent, but omsconfig (DSC configuration) will not be available and will need to be re-installed. Shell bundle exiting with code 61
