from the error description, I can only suspect you may be able to see
the error message in Horizon logs. Usually a "Something went wrong"
message is the nicer way for a 500 server error.

If I understood correctly what Thomas was trying to suggest is: Ubuntu
and Debian packages should work on both systems, i.e. you should be
able to use the Debian packages on Ubuntu. Thomas puts a lot of effort
in these.

OpenStack is quite easy to misconfigure, and you can waste some time in
finding your own typos (or the one in guides). This is why installers
are popular.
