My whole ordeal started when i wanted to upgrade my fvc version to 4.0 to use SCHRAM 256, i decided to remove my current MongoDB installation and just install version 4.4, following the steps here https://docs.mongodb.com/v4.4/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/
The issue I’m running into is that according to the docs it should automatically create the /var/lib/mongodb directories which it did with my previous instillation, but hasn’t done when i have installed it. Trying to run the following command leads to the following error
sudo systemctl start mongo
● mongodb.service - LSB: An object/document-oriented database Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/mongodb; generated) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2022-01-23 19:13:25 UTC; 5s ago Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8) Process: 46572 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/mongodb start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Jan 23 19:13:24 axillaryweb-droplet systemd: Starting LSB: An object/document-oriented database...

Jan 23 19:13:25 axillaryweb-droplet systemd: Failed to start LSB: An object/document-oriented database.
I have been bashing my head trying to figure out what is going wrong here.
(It should be noted that when installing MongoDB i used to specific version command and not latest version)
