update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for maildir.5.
 
Hi
I am having a problem with the instalation of :
The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 9.10 [ISPConfig 3]:

update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7

I have:

----------# update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for maildir.5.
----------# update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for maildirquota.7.

I do:

aptitude remove maildrop
aptitude safe-upgrade
update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5
update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7
aptitude install maildrop

The problem persissts

Also:

falko: Hm, maybe the best is to completely remove all Courier packages before the upgrade, then do the upgrad and install Courier again afterwards. Instead of removing Courier you could also try this with maildrop.

Nothing,

Give me some ideas...

Does
aptitude install maildrop
give you any errors? If so, what's the output of
Code:

ls -la /etc/alternatives/
?

No error when I install maildrop

falko 20th February 2010 13:29

Hm, I think it's ok then. Probably the maildrop package was fixed.

It should be:
update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5.gz
update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7.gz

If you already installed maildrop then do the following:
aptitude remove maildrop
update-alternatives --remove-all maildir.5.gz
update-alternatives --remove-all maildirquota.7.gz
aptitude install maildrop

I received this error. I appended the .gz to both and all went fine. Maildrop installed clean following this.

Hi everybody,
thanks for sharing your all ideas. Once I also installed a linux machine. But I did not find any kind of error there. I think it might happen for the disk.
