    Customized systemd script found @ /lib/systemd/system/nodered.service. To prevent loss of modifications, we'll not recreate the systemd script.
    If you want the installer to recreate the systemd script, please delete or rename the current script & re-run the installer.

Node-RED is not yet fully installed. Please re-run the install script again manually.
bash <(curl -sL
then retry node-red-start

Reason, two files (scripts) are missing: node-red-pi & node-red ..

How to fix it ? Thanks. Titus.
