I've installed kallithea on Ubuntu 16.04. I've set up the location of the repositories at /data/repositories and this directory is owned by the same user that runs kallithea on the system.
When I use the "Add Repository" button in the dashboard, (either a git or hg repository) I am shown a message that says "Repository "test" is being created, you will be redirected when this process is finished. "
However, it never redirects. If I look at the logs, there are 4 lines that are repeated over and over until I navigate to another location.

On the file system, a repository is not created.
I am able to create repository groups. Those appear on the file system as expected. I am not about to create repositories within the repository groups though.
