Cannot Install lightning node

New installation. Bitcoin node is installed and fully synced. Nothing else is installed.

Tried to install lightning app. Does not install.

Check container logs.

            triggerUncaughtException(err, true /* fromPromise */);

[Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/data/.lnd/tls.cert'] {
  errno: -2,
  code: 'ENOENT',
  syscall: 'open',
  path: '/data/.lnd/tls.cert'

I then created the external paths to fulfil the container-internal /data/.lnd/ and /data/.lnd/data/chain/bitcoin/mainnet/ but the error message continues (presumably because channel.backup and tls.cert do not exist).

Can anyone advise where this has gone wrong and what I should do next?
