I'm attemping to install nxlog on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 machine from nxlog-ce_2.9.1716_ubuntu_1604_amd64.deb. It seems to install correctly, however I get an error from the post-installation script.
Relevant output from 'dpkg -i nxlog-ce_2.9.1716_ubuntu_1604_amd64.deb':
Preparing to unpack nxlog-ce_2.9.1716_ubuntu_1604_amd64.deb ... Unpacking nxlog-ce (2.9.1716) ... Setting up nxlog-ce (2.9.1716) ... [....] Starting nxlog (via systemctl): nxlog.serviceFailed to start nxlog.service: Unit nxlog.service not found. failed! dpkg: error processing package nxlog-ce (--install): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 5
Running the dpkg command again, or just ignoring that it "failed" and running '/etc/init.d/nxlog start' afterwards both are successful.
Any idea why this is happening?
The dpkg command returning an error status is causing issues when performing the installation via an automation script.
