Sometimes, VIPM can encounter Error 11 ("Too many files open") when running on Linux. There's a relatively easy fix, which is to increase the number of files that applications are allowed to have open on your system.
You may see a pop-up error message indicating that Error 11 has occurred. Often, this happens the first time you run VIPM after installation, when it's downloading information about all the available packages.
You can confirm this by looking at the the error logs located here:
The error entry in the logs will look something like the following:
=========== START of VIPM 2022.0 Error Message ===========
An internal VIPM 2022.0 Error has occurred on: Monday August 22, 2022 at 06:59:32 AM
= Automated Message Start =

LabVIEW: (Hex 0xB) Too many files open.
To prevent this error from occurring, you will need to increase the number of files that applications are allowed to have open.
