I have a VPS with 6 core, 60GB RAM and 1TB SSD space.

I installed Nominatim on Ubuntu 18.04 following the official installation here Nominatim Installation

I tried to import the openstreet planet pbf file located here Planet OpenStreetMap using the command below:

./utils/setup.php --osm-file planet-latest.osm.pbf --all --osm2pgsql-cache 28000 2>&1 | tee setup.log

After few hours I got the error Segmentation fault ERROR: No Data see below:

Any idea why I got this error please? Thanks.

What is the date of the planet file that you downloaded, 191118 or 191125? If you don't remember then what is the exact size (in bytes) of your planet-latest.pbf?

I went to the Planet OpenStreetMap link above and downloaded the Latest Weekly Planet PBF File from this link It is 45GB in size.

The newest planet is 48GB. So either you have a planet that is at least 2 months old or your download was incomplete. An incomplete pbf would also explain the segmentation fault.

Sorry I meant 48G not 45GB. My terminal shows it : -rw-rw-r-- 1 nominatim nominatim 49G Nov 28 14:49 planet-latest.osm.pbf and the file is the newest one, downloaded yesterday.

I imported the same file with Nominatim 2.4, osm2pgsql 1.2.0 two days ago and it finished fine. "Node(5612922k 6921.0k/s) Way(622516k 96.77k/s) Relation(7236370 1012.79/s)", the node count matches your output so I think the planet file and osm2pgsql version itself is alright.

Actually I changed this --osm2pgsql-cache 28000 to this --osm2pgsql-cache 18000 and it worked. It is still importing data since 12 hours now. I'll comment again if all worked fine. Thanks.
