[solved] Upgrade 4->5 dependencies prevent configuration (Abhängigkeitsprobleme verhindern Konfiguration von )

  • Hello, I'm stuck during upgrade process from OMV 4->5.

    OMV is running on a ProLiant Gen8 with a Xeon E3-1260L on a SSD.

    I followed the recommended update process from here: OMV 5 finally

    But install routine was not successful. I got notes about dependencies and unconfigured components

    Result from

    apt-get purge openmediavault-omvextrasorg

    Result from dpkg -l | grep openm

    How can I finish the installation process?

    Thx a lot.

  • I suggest you run the commands provided by the error message:

    sudo systemctl status avahi-daemon.service
    sudo journalctl -xe

    It might give an indication what went wrong. Also this part of the output:


    Dez 20 14:07:15 EiKlaut avahi-daemon[13710]: chroot.c: fork() failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

    had a possible solution in this forum. You might find more hints by searching for this error. If you find something useful and fixed it you can try to manually finish the package configuration and installation:

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get install -f

    Also read the full release notes before attempting a system upgrade (they are available in German too!):


  • Hello dleidert,

    thanks a lot for your reply.

    I searched a lot about avahi and what this could be preventing me from upgrade.

    I think I found the issue on my setup - just a few minutes ago.

    There were still some docker container running, messing up the upgrade routine. Shame on me for not double checking.

    Thanks a lot for your reply and anyone else thinking about a solution.
