Question

error: /var/lib/dpkg/info/systemd.postinst: 133: /var/lib/dpkg/info/systemd.postinst: cannot open /run/systemd/was-enabled: No such file

With ubuntu 14.04; does anyone know why /run/systemd/was-enabled does not exist and is expected?

Thanks …

Richard

That’s great @MartinCui! Sometimes I forget the first rule of IT. Turn it off and on again! LOL

thanks @domcamilliere, I encountered the same issue while installing openjdk-8-jdk, and solved the issue by restarting.

So as strange as it is. I restarted my droplet and tried again and thankfully it worked!

running into this issue trying to install tightvncserver hmmm
