olback115621yBack up the files and reinstall. dist-upgrade worked from 14.04 to 16.04 but 16.04 to 18.04 really did not work for me. Had to reinstall 🤷♂️
How come when other people rub dist-upgrade they fully upgrade their distro but when I have to use do-release-upgrade?
Time to get nasty and "/bin/bash -ro"!
Ups! -rw 😳
Get rid of that snowflake server and run smbd from within a container (mount whatever files its sharing as a separate volume) so you can upgrade the OS independently from it
@unsignedint Maybe it's time I overcome my reservations against the docker hype train,.. but y'know we were deploying into lxc in 2012 and in one installation on a virtualized server their backups were f** us up,.. next I ran into a docker fleet as build system for about 15 linux distros, boy what a pain, at least cross compiling saved us a factor 2.
So I somehow value that thing being a full fledged VM.
(In the end: docker or VM, the problem is that you often don't have a proper snapshot once you break it)
