[SOLVED] [Jessie → Stretch Upgrade] Stuck upgrading Samba

Postby littlebigman » 2018-05-02 10:58


I followed this tutorial to upgrade Debian from Jessie to Stretch:
https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-upgrade- ... -9-stretch

After running "apt-get dist-upgrade", the application got stuck at some point… until I figured it was because I have a cron job that puts the computer to sleep every day after performing a backup job :-/

Once I logged back on, the upgrade seems to have gone OK, expect for Samba:
Code: Select all
root@debian:~# apt-get install samba

Samba is not being run as an AD Domain Controller, masking samba-ad-dc-service.

Errors were encountered while processing:

Any idea what I could try to finalize the upgrade?

Thank you.

Edit: Problem solved by editing /etc/samba/smb.conf with my own stuff, and rerunning the following commands

Code: Select all
# apt-get install samba
# dpkg --configure -a
# apt-get install samba
