I posted it up just last evening, so searches were probably run before that. I had to piece that solution together from some idea that the update broke "something", after trying all of the suggestions to fix permissions, etc which of course didn't work.

Best course of action when you can't make an upgrade work is to rollback, so that's all that really does. Note that I got the old version info from /var/log/aptitude which should give you a changelog old ==> new. From there I just plugged the version number above with the maildrop={version} and let 'er rip.

Pointing out my troubleshooting steps so it can help everyone fix other issues that can crop up from bad updates in the future.

Hi I think the "aptitude hold maildrop" did not work as I had to downgrade and flush again this morning. ISPconfig 3 must be doing something else to auto upgrade the packages at night.

How can I check the ISPCONFIG update process?

ISPConfig has nothing to do with this behaviour as there is no update function in ispconfig. You should check your cronjobs, most liley you have apt-cron or a similar package installed which updates your system automatically.

To find a answer for the bug in the maildrop package, please answer the questions from here:

I just noticed that my update manager has maildrop listed again. Looking for a solution, since I know I will update without looking and get the maildrop(I know I shouldn't do this without looking, but when busy I forget).

Can someone please answer my questions that I posted in the other thread? Which Ubuntu version do you use and what is the exact version number of the broken maildrop package.

Ok. Then it must be a problem with the deb package for 9.04 only, as the package in 9.10 on my test server has the same version number but it works. I will try to do a test install of 9.04 tomorrow. Has someone already filed a bugreport in the ubuntu bugtracker?

Hi,

I just set up my own root cron job at 8am before normal business hours to downgrade and flush

to answer Till's question:
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 kernel: 2.6.28-17-server #58-Ubuntu

and aptitude log shows:

[DOWNGRADE] maildrop 2.0.4-3+lenny3build0.9.04.1 -> 2.0.4-3

Therefore maildrop 2.0.4-3+lenny3build0.9.04.1 seems to be the offending package.
