> Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

  > I'm quite sure, this issue happened because your configuration file is
> incompatible with the new version. To prove this, please send the output
> of the "systemctl status syslog-ng.service" command after the failed
> upgrade and/or the configuration file if it possible. Also I'm thinking
> about a more robust upgrade path, covering this situation.

There are quite a few configuration files, here is /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf.  Please let me
know if you need something else.

@version: 3.5
@include "scl.conf"
@include "`scl-root`/system/tty10.conf"

# Syslog-ng configuration file, compatible with default Debian syslogd
# installation.

# First, set some global options.
