I have completed the test run and here is a screenshot of what I get.
Upon examination of the error logs the problem is quite apparent. We have Apache installed by default which is hardly surprising but the docs do not make mention of this fact at all. On Debian 8 it seems there is a conflict between the version of Nginx that EE wants to install and the one in the repositories. In both cases this is a speed bump. These are not end of the world problems but show there has been a decline in commits.
In any case updates were a regular feature in the past now we are stuck at the current version. May be I am checking the 4.0 tree wrong but it seems the last commit was many months ago. Hence the question: What is going on? You will find similar questions to these on the issues tab of on GitHub.
