Lately I've been getting a mail from the server every day,
Cron <root@host> test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily )
/etc/cron.daily/apt: DB Update failed, database locked
If i just run the
/etc/cron.daily/apt part it just stays there with no output, i tried running
tail -f /var/log/apt/*.log /var/log/syslog & and then running
/etc/cron.daily/apt but no output either
Which database is locked and by what, i'm able to do
apt-get update successfully.
Did some updates yesterday and had to restart, so the microsoft fix wont work here (this has been going on since before the updates so not related)
What else can I look into?
This is a amazon instance incase it matters
