Can't Upload - 500 Error

I have followed Installing from source - Mastodon documentation and the preparation documentation on Unbuntu 18 install.

I have installed once with S3 and once without. Each installation does the same error… I am unable to upload images anywhere in the instance.

I see a ** POST https://xxx/api/v2/media 500 ** in the console.

Past topics are reference a PUBLIC/SYSTEM folder that does not exist in my installation and chmod changes to rectify these issues.

Again, I followed Installing from source - Mastodon documentation step by step and had no installation issues in the process.

Any direction or help would be appreciated

Relevant logs should be available in journalctl -u mastodon-web --follow
