    I'm having weird problems with my dist-upgrade.

    dpkg --configure -a
    seems to hang all the time, i cannot start or stop any services.. and to gain access to the system i've had to start sshd in the rc.d script manually.

    It seems nothing will really start/stop.. I've also tried apt-get install -f with no avail.

    Do you have a backup?

    Yep..
    I can see in systemctl that the dbus.service didnt start, and systemd-modules-load.service didnt either..
    You think i could just delete the lock file for dpkg, remove the packages according to this: https://www.howtoforge.com/community/threads/wheezy-2-jessie.69979/#post-329581
    then carry on again?

    I have a backup in the system.. although i'm not 100% on how to restore, or even what to restore..

    I'm also in DK btw ;)

    I've gone ahead and solved this with a mixture of restoring some backups.. deleting systemd and rebooting.. seems to have worked. upgrading 1 of 7 servers to jessie.. the first one went like hell.. :( must be an easier way.

    How did you delete systemd? Was that the only thing you did before upgrading?

    Thanks

    I upgraded several servers from deb 7 to deb 8 already without having any issues yet, they were all based more or less on the perfect server setup. I used:

    https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/how-to-upgrade-debian-wheezy-to-jessie-stable-release/

    Then a ispconfig update with reconfigure services so that all config files get updated to versions that match the newly installed software and then login to ispconfig and run Tools > Resync on the websites to update the apache vhost files to apache 2.4 syntax.
