Upgrade to v68 fails: FAILED: service bind9 restart

I stopped BIND9 and nsd services for the favour of unbound + rspamd. I discussed this setup here already.
I don’t need NSD because I’m using external DNS.

Now I want to upgrade to MiaB v68, however this fails with error:

Mail-in-a-Box Version:  v68

Updating system packages...
Installing system packages...
Initializing system random number generator...
Firewall is active and enabled on system startup

FAILED: service bind9 restart
Failed to restart bind9.service: Unit bind9.service not found.

Can you please advise how to complete the upgrade (manually)?


Looks like bind9 failed to install. What happens if you use sudo apt-get install bind9?

Actually bind9 is already installed.
However related service named.service is stopped.

And here’s an indication to the root cause:
bind9.service does not exist

sudo systemctl list-unit-files | grep bind
rpcbind.target                               static          -

sudo systemctl list-unit-files | grep named
named-resolvconf.service                     disabled        enabled
named.service                                disabled        enabled
systemd-hostnamed.service                    static          -

Oh, if you’re not using bind9, just uncomment that line in the setup files where it calls for a restart of the bind9 service. And perhaps it’s best to also remove the installation and setup of bind9/named from the sh files.

(In the installations I know, named.service can be used as reference instead of the bind9.service file. But the bind9 reference should work. What kind of box is this, did you already modify other stuff.)
