After upgrade to 20.04 Files (and Krusader!) can find the volumes on local NAS, but individual files and folders are returned as "No such file or folder; has it been deleted?".

Taking note of previous related posts I have tried:

sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf


workgroup = WORKGROUP    
client min protocol = NT1    
server max protocol = NT1    
client min protocol = CORE

Not sure what else to try. The 18.04 box still works perfectly and I can't work out if it is a Nautilus, Gnome, Samba, or (unlikely) a kernel thing. Stumped! Can anyone help?

file-as-folder is fixed via https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/+bug/1872476

It's fixed in the package https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/2:4.11.6+dfsg-0ubuntu1.2 which is currently sitting in focal-proposed, and will be in updates shortly.


I make a copy of the file smb.conf

cd /etc/samba
sudo cp smb.conf smb.conf.old

then I changed the original file

sudo gedit smb.conf

In global section under work group I add a new line

#This new line is to obtain access to my DNS-320l   
client min protocol = NT1

I save the file and finally re-start my computer and everything worked, I can access my files. Of course I put my credentials, user and password of my DNS, I hope this could be useful for someone else.
