[SOLVED] dkpg error

Clean new start - no RAID - just sda partitioned ...

https://www.sun2save.com/images/misc1/d … tions1.jpg

After I first saw this nginx error E: nginx-extras: installed nginx-extras package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1 I tried reinstalling nginx from inside Synaptic Package Manager - no joy.

So, I tried this ...

root@devuan1:~# sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up nginx-extras (1.18.0-6.1+deb11u3) ...
Starting nginx: nginx failed!
invoke-rc.d: initscript nginx, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing package nginx-extras (--configure):
 installed nginx-extras package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

Any notion as to what's busted and how to proceed, please?

Re: [SOLVED] dkpg error

Is port 80 already being used by another application?

ss -nlt 'sport = 80'

The script is supposed to fail more gracefully though hmm

Your disk partitioning is still weird btw but I won't be discussing that in this thread.

Try killing 2652 - sudo kill -9 2652

Don't use SIGKILL unless absolutely necessary. Just use SIGTERM instead, which is the default action for kill.

And anyway the OP already killed it.

Re: [SOLVED] dkpg error

What does the log say? Don't ask me where they are though. I don't know.
