I get that a UUID is a unique identifier

But could someone please explain what that means in a broader term

Also, what if my application is throwing errors saying it can't create a UUID

What would that mean, and how would I fix it ?

Thanks

In a border term, it ensure there is no duplicate or conflict with the existing entries.

In my experience UUID errors is due to missing / bad config files. But without better understanding of the application, this is all I can comment on.

UUIDs are most often used to identify block device in Linux, and also it is stored in the superblock of the block device. So if your application couldn't create a uuid, may be you have bad block device?
