Do you want to continue? [Y/n] 

You will be asked to select a device of your IR remote while installing 'lirc', but here for ODROID CloudShell you can select 'None' for IR remote receiver and transmitter. Once all the installation is completed, you can reboot and now you will see kernel boot log on LCD, and finally login shell will come up. Once you have done these commands, all changes will be affected on next boot. So please reboot.

root@odroid-server:~# reboot
