Hello Alex,

Thank you for your post.

The error message you have posted is probably because your /etc/sudoers file (or any file it includes) has:

Defaults requiretty

which makes sudo require a TTY. Red Hat systems (RHEL, Fedora, Centos...) have been known to require a TTY in default sudoers file. That provides no real security benefit and can be safely removed.

We hope this helps your issue.

Have a great day!
