Installing devstack on Ubuntu 16.04.4 hangs/stops at

I had to disable etcd in or else it was showing error at etcd.

It could be due to some setting in your local.conf or a bug in devstack. To understand better why the image create command fails, check the Glance API log.

On a default installation, devstack uses systemd to manage the various OpenStack services. If that is your case, the Glance API log can be viewed like this: journalctl -u devstack@g-api. Otherwise, the log is probably /opt/stack/logs/g-api.log.

You can also run the failed command manually from the command line, and add the --debug option. But judging from your earlier comment, it would seem that Glance API is simply not running.

You may also have useful information in the log file. The Glance error may be a consequence of an earlier problem, which could be logged as well. In short, don't only check the last few lines of the log.
