When upgrading from Jessie to Stretch, at the end of dist-upgrade, it
ends with an error:
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
To finish installing nagios-nrpe-server, I ended up verifying the
# Automatically added by dh_installinit
if [ -x "/etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server" ]; then
update-rc.d nagios-nrpe-server defaults >/dev/null
invoke-rc.d nagios-nrpe-server start || exit $?
As I have nagios-nrpe being invoked by (x)inetd and not running
as a daemon, it failed startup and thus the apt dist-upgrade
I do not recommend activating the service for boot and starting it, as
the service can also be started on non daemon-mode.
