[Syslog-ng-maintainers] Bug#757903: syslog-ng-core: invoke-rc.d: initscript syslog-ng, action "stop" failed.

Package: syslog-ng-core
Version: 3.5.6-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Today the upgrade from 3.5.5-2 to 3.5.6-1 failed with:
| Processing triggers for syslog-ng-core (3.5.6-1) ...
| Job for syslog-ng.service canceled.
| invoke-rc.d: initscript syslog-ng, action "stop" failed.
| dpkg: error processing package syslog-ng-core (--configure):
|  subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Uncommenting invoke-rc.d syslog-ng stop || exit $? in line 6 of the
postinst script and running apt install -f fixes the issue and lets the
installation complete.

I've also seen this issue while installing syslog-ng-core for the first
time on another system.

Both systems are running systemd if that matters. Let me know if you
want more info. My other system waits to be upgraded.
