Solved.
manually created plex user and group
then created plexmediaserver directory and :

sudo chmod 0777 -R /var/lib/plexmediaserver
sudo chown plex:plex -R /var/lib/plexmediaserver
sudo service plexmediaserver restart

now it’s all ok
Best Regards.

I have experienced this as well on my last few installs. Have any of the higher ups noticed this yet?
