Package: samba-common-bin
Version: 2:4.11.5+dfsg-1+b1
Severity: normal

While upgrading samba-common-bin from 2:4.11.5+dfsg-1 to 2:4.11.5+dfsg-1+b1:

Performing actions...
Setting up samba-common-bin (2:4.11.5+dfsg-1+b1) ...
Checking smb.conf with testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Loaded services file OK.
ERROR: lock directory /run/samba does not exist

ERROR: pid directory /run/samba does not exist


dpkg: error processing package samba-common-bin (--configure):
 installed samba-common-bin package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

samba-common-bin was installed as a dependency of smbclient, the "server
role" message is misleading as I don't have any need for a SMB server
(and for any lock or pidfile, afaik).

Thank you,
Gian Piero.
