I have upgraded smoothly to 16.04, everything seems ok except samba not starting:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/smbd status ● smbd.service - LSB: start Samba SMB/CIFS daemon (smbd) Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/smbd; bad; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2016-04-25 21:43:03 EET; 23min ago Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8) Process: 1954 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/smbd start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Apr 25 21:43:02 home systemd: Starting LSB: start Samba SMB/CIFS daemon (smbd)... Apr 25 21:43:03 home smbd: * Starting SMB/CIFS daemon smbd Apr 25 21:43:03 home smbd: ...fail! Apr 25 21:43:03 home systemd: smbd.service: Control process exited, code=exited status=1 Apr 25 21:43:03 home systemd: Failed to start LSB: start Samba SMB/CIFS daemon (smbd). Apr 25 21:43:03 home systemd: smbd.service: Unit entered failed state. Apr 25 21:43:03 home systemd: smbd.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
I did not alter any configuration after the upgrade, I just need to maintain the 15.10 functionalities. I have done several reboots with no luck.
Update1: I purged samba and tried to re-install, but got the following error:
Errors were encountered while processing: samba E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) Failed to perform requested operation on package. Trying to recover: Setting up samba (2:4.3.8+dfsg-0ubuntu1) ... Job for smbd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status smbd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. invoke-rc.d: initscript smbd, action "start" failed. dpkg: error processing package samba (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.23-0ubuntu3) ... Errors were encountered while processing: samba
Looks like the 16.04 package has a bad post-installation script?
Any tips/tricks are appreciated.
