    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/
    ?

    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.
